Shopper Experience

When a shopper with a Bolt Account abandons a cart, their actions and device are logged via checkout and set to Bolt. After a short waiting period to ensure a shopper has not just accidentally lost service or closed their window, an abandoned cart message is sent to the device they last used.


SMS capabilities are coming soon.
