How to Set Up Your Premium Account

Follow this guide to learn how to customize your digital business cards with custom colors, a personalized card link, and a branded QR code.

If you’ve recently signed up for HiHello Basic or HiHello Professional—the two new premium digital business card plans for individuals—you may be wondering, “What now?”. Whether you’re new to HiHello or recently upgraded to a premium account, here's everything you need to know about how to get the most out of your plan. 


How to set up your premium account

You have the option of setting up your premium account using the mobile or web app. If you want to set up your premium account on the mobile app, download the HiHello app from the App Store or Google Play. If you prefer using a computer, you can access your account on the web by logging into the HiHello website.


If you’re an existing user and need assistance logging into your account on a computer, make sure you have the latest version of the mobile app, and then go to HiHello Settings → Use the desktop app. You’ll be emailed a link that you can use to log in on your computer.


If you’re new to HiHello and need additional help with creating your cards before setting the premium customizations, we recommend reading the blog post, “A Guide to Digital Business Cards” before continuing.


How to set custom colors on your business card

With any premium account, you can customize the colors on your digital business card. Whether you’re using the mobile or web app, select the card you want to customize and select Edit. In Edit mode, you should see a row of colors to choose from. To set a custom color, select the color wheel and either choose a color, use the color matching tool, or enter specific RGB values.


Here is a breakdown of the different color components:

  1. Primary color - The primary color is the main color of your card design, and is visible on the wave and icons. It also appears on any hashtags or @mentions. 
  2. Secondary color - The secondary color is visible on any buttons. For example, the “SAVE CONTACT” button would be in the secondary color.
  3. Primary accent - The primary accent is visible on the symbols inside the icons.
  4. Secondary accent - The secondary accent is visible on any text inside any buttons. For example, the words “Save Contact” would be in the secondary accent.

Once you set your colors, click Save to see how your card looks and make any adjustments as needed

With HiHello Basic and HiHello Professional you can customize the colors on your digital business card.


How to personalize the link to your business card

With HiHello Professional, you can personalize the link to your digital business card. To set a custom link, pick a card and go to Card Settings. If you’re using the web app, you’ll see Card Settings at the top of your screen (it’s the one with the gear icon). If you’re using the mobile app, tap the three-dot menu in the upper right corner, and then tap Card Settings.

Once you’re in Card Settings, select Personalized Link. You can then type in the new slug, and then save. 


The link will always begin with the prefix “hihello.me/hi/” but you can customize anything that goes after the “/.” (For example, you could set the link to your card as hihello.me/hi.Your.Name.) This feature is only available on HiHello Professional and HiHello Business. If you would like to upgrade your account from Basic to Professional, you can do so on our Pricing page.

How to include your logo in your QR code

With HiHello Professional, you can insert a logo into your QR code for optimal branding in Card Settings. While in Card Settings, click or tap QR Code and you’ll be able to upload your logo as a .jpg or .png. This logo should be a square logo, ideally 332x332, to fit in the available space on the QR code.


With HiHello Professional you can insert your company's logo into your virtual business card's QR code.
