Product Add-ons & Upsells
Product Add-ons are a great way for merchants to add convenience and enhance the shopping experience. Offering complementary or add-on products - such as gift boxes, insurance, screen protectors, or batteries - can ensure you have everything you need for your purchase.

Static Pricing (Default)
Static Add-ons are a quick and easy way to get started with upselling as part of the checkout experience.
For example, you can add some of the following things as optional add-ons to a customer’s current order:
- Product samples
- Popular accessories
- Trending items
Merchants using BigCommerce may also enable static donations at checkout, allowing the shopper to specify the amount they’d like to donate.
Dynamic Pricing Add-ons
Shoppers can add shipping protection to their carts, if a merchant is using the Route Add-on.
Route is a delivery insurance system. When using the Dynamic Add-on for Route, the checkout total is calculated by calling one of Route’s servers to get the total price including the added cost of Route’s insurance service.
Bolt offers the ability to allow customers to include a donation to checkout. See the table below for a list of donation options available.
To implement Donations in your checkout, reach out to Bolt Support to turn on the

Cart-Based Product Add-Ons
Cart-Based Product Add-Ons is currently available to participating Beta merchants.
Merchants can use their own upsell engine (built in house or a third-party service) to power product upsells in checkout. To do so, merchants need only pass in the recommendations they would like to show a given shopper into our checkout modal, and Bolt does the rest.
