Offboarding Questions

How are accounts handled if a merchant stops using Bolt?

Bolt allows the merchant to keep all of the accounts created by shoppers while visiting their storefront. These accounts are converted back to traditional store accounts and require shoppers to create a new password.

How are deleted accounts handled?

If a shopper deletes either a store account or their Bolt account, the other linked account is not automatically deleted. Shoppers can individually delete both accounts using the following methods:

  • Store Accounts: A shopper must reach out to the merchant to delete their store account.
  • Bolt Accounts: A shopper must reach out to Bolt to delete their Bolt account.
