Deliver a secure, logged-in experience to your customers that results in increased account registrations for you and reduced friction for your shoppers.
Features & Benefits
SSO Commerce unifies logins for shoppers by connecting your store accounts with Bolt Accounts. This gives your shoppers access to everything related to your brand—like past order history, loyalty programs, and a one-click checkout experience across all sites in the Bolt Network. It’s still your brand, just powered by Bolt.
✓ Passkey Biometrics Sign In
Shoppers using a mobile device can use their fingerprint or face camera to log in faster and more securely than ever with Passkeys.
✓ Autonomous Account Creation
Whenever a shopper checks out and saves their information, we also create a store account on your behalf.
✓ Linked Accounts
For your existing customers that have already created store accounts, we upgrade these accounts to Bolt Accounts (and vice versa) the next time a customer logs in.
If you have your own shopper accounts and are located in the United States of America (US), you can take advantage of our Global Consent Collection feature.
✓ Higher Conversion Rates for First Time Shoppers
Online stores ask new shoppers for the same personal data and payment information over and over again. Shoppers with Bolt Accounts can breeze through checkout with one click, even on sites they’ve never shopped at before.
✓ PCI Compliance
Obtain PCI compliance by using Bolt’s systems that have been rigorously tested to uphold security standards.
✓ Saved Address & Payment Information
Offer customers a way to save payment information and complete purchases with a One Click checkout.
✓ Secure Login Options
✓ Frictionless Account Creation
Shoppers create an account once, then never again. By selecting a checkbox, shoppers save their information during their first checkout on a site in the Bolt Network and never have to enter personal data again.
✓ Faster Checkout Across Retailers
Bolt Account users can shop across any stores participating in the Bolt Network—even if they’ve never shopped there before.
✓ Centralized Security & Account Protection
Store payment and personal information in a single location as opposed to over multiple store accounts across the internet. All payment information is tokenized and stored in a token vault used for transactions.
✓ Order Tracking
Allow shoppers to reorder or buy new products with Bolt’s Order Tracking feature.
✓ Social Authentication
Allow shoppers to log in using their Google or Apple accounts, providing faster and more secure authentication.
Bolt Accounts are natively supported by Bolt Checkout, meaning you do not have to do any additional setup to use them. See our shopper-focused quickstart guide for details on setting up a Bolt Account.
Within SSO Commerce, you can choose to enable additional features to fit your needs:
SSO vs. Account Linking
What is the difference between SSO and Account Linking?
- Bolt fully takes over the shopper’s login experience.
- Bolt provides social login, biometrics authentication, and other innovations for secure and quick login.
- All shoppers log into and out of their merchant accounts via the Bolt-hosted surfaces.
With Account Linking:
- The merchant retains control of the login experience, allowing for maximum customization via our direct API design.
- The merchant decides when to leverage Bolt’s passwordless login or rely on the merchant’s native login experience.
