Manage Internal Devices

Merchants should discourage their customer service agents from creating or logging into Bolt Accounts on behalf of shoppers to mitigate security risks. One way to do that is to disable account-based checkout on company devices through the Bolt Merchant Dashboard’s Device Management feature.

While disabled, agents are presented a login error when attempting to load the Bolt Checkout modal. This encourages customer service agents to either use guest checkout to assist shoppers or use the recommended backoffice order fulfillment workflows instead of placing orders through the storefront on behalf of a shopper. Using the recommended fulfillment workflows also ensures a higher rate of order indemnification.

How to Enable Device Management

This setting is enabled by default; once a customer service agent logs into the Bolt Merchant Dashboard on their device (e.g., a work laptop), cookies are installed to disable account-based checkout for that browser.

  1. Log in to the Bolt Merchant Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to Help Center > Device Management.
  3. Toggle Enable Guest-Only Checkout for this device to enabled.

How to Re-enable Devices
