Set Up Bolt for CardConnect
Learn how to integrate Bolt with CardConnect.

See Set Up Bolt One-Click for BigCommerce for instructions specific to this platform.

Step 1: Obtain CardConnect Keys

To integrate Bolt and CardConnect, you’ll need the following account information that your CardConnect account representative provided during onboarding:

  • Username
  • Password
  • Merchant ID
  • URL

Step 2: Add CardConnect Keys to Bolt

  1. Log into the Bolt Merchant Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Payments.
  3. Click Add CardConnect.
  4. Complete the following fields:
    • URL
    • Username
    • Password
    • Merchant ID
  5. Click Add CardConnect.

You have now successfully linked Bolt to your CardConnect account.

Step 3: Configure Risk Settings

With Fraud Protection

Bolt’s fraud detection engine uses advanced risk signals to protect your business from fraud. Bolt Checkout does not require shoppers to enter a billing address, so the Address Verification System (AVS) mismatch settings may trigger automatic declines on transactions from real shoppers with an otherwise low risk score.

Use the CardConnect guide on AVS settings to allow all transactions where the shipping and billing address do not match.

Without Fraud Protection

Contact your fraud solutions provider to inform them that payments transmitted via this processor will not provide CVV match information. For payments made with a card saved to a shopper’s account, Bolt does not transmit CVV match data to processors.

Step 4: Set Up Chargeback Notifications

Set up your communication preferences in CardConnect to receive digital notifications for new chargebacks. This ensures that you have enough time to submit the dispute and respond with evidence.

Chargeback Handling

  • With Fraud Protection: CardConnect supports manual dispute submissions.
  • Without Fraud Protection: Follow CardConnect’s chargebacks handling process.
