The Bolt discounts feature does not expand upon platform native discount functionality, meaning that if your platform supports only one native discount — that does not change by enabling discounts in Bolt Checkout. Bolt’s discount feature supports third party discounts applied by a shopper during checkout inside the Bolt Checkout modal. A shopper can typically apply one native platform discount and many (supported) third-party discounts. If you are unsure about the setup of your discounts, reach out to our support team for assistance.
How to Enable Discount Codes within Bolt
- Enable discounts to display in Bolt Checkout through the Merchant Dashboard.
- Navigate to Checkout > Configuration > Checkout UI.
- Select Display Discount Input next to Checkout Settings.
Checkout totals that reach zero ($0.00) when a discount code or gift card is applied bypass Bolt’s fraud review analysis and are automatically approved.
Enable Discount Codes (Custom Cart)
- Provide Bolt with a dedicated URL for handling Bolt’s POST requests by contacting your Customer Support Representative.
- Ensure the given endpoint can respond with your list of discount codes, using the format provided in our Merchant Callback API reference.
Shoppers see a +DISCOUNT button by default in the checkout modal. This button can be customized to use alternative text, such as +PROMO or +USE GIFT CARD. To update button text, reach out to your Customer Success Manager.
It is possible to allow customers to enter more than one discount at a time at checkout. Reach out to your Customer Success Manager to enable.
Allow customers to redeem gift cards at checkout. Bolt gift card solutions vary by integration type. See the table below to implement gift cards based on your set up.
