Create a Merchant Account
Learn how to create your own Merchant Dashboard Account.

You can create your own merchant dashboard account and begin configuring your checkout today! You can configure payment and support information later, once you have access to the dashboard.

Step 1: Create Bolt Account from the Onboarding Form

Collect the following information and use it to fill out the onboarding form:

  • Primary and Additional Person Name and Email (to create account users)
  • Payment Processor
  • Primary Business Name (DBA Name)
  • Billing Address
  • Legal Address
  • Industry
  • Sandbox/Staging URL (Optional)
  • Shopping Cart


This information helps us create a unique account for your company.

After you’ve filled out the form, we’ll get started generating your account!

Step 2: Access Your Account

After your account is generated, you’ll receive two emails in your inbox, inviting you to log into your production and sandbox accounts (these are separate accounts). From there, you can add new users, retrieve your API Keys, and configure other parts of your account.
