Checkout Button Design Guidelines

The Checkout button loads the Bolt Checkout modal when selected. Shoppers can manage their credentials, payment methods, and shipping options from the modal.

Merchants can either use Bolt’s default styling for greater cross-network shopper recognition or customize the Checkout button to fit their own brand requirements using the guidelines in this article. See our Modal Styling Guide for a list of buttons, fields, copy, and other customizable features.
