The image element allows you to add a single image (.jpg, .png or .gif) to your message. Your can also include one button that leads to a URL.

Cart Element
Adding a cart element to your Flow will show a user the item(s) they've added to their cart from their most recent UpdateCart event. Add a discount to your cart to incentivize purchases! 

The cart element only works out of the box when ShopMessage is properly integrated on your website.
