- USD Payment Methods (Required)
- Require a Shopper Phone Number (Optional)
Show Payment Methods for USD Only

If you transact in multiple currencies, ensure that your default currency is USD.
Bolt One-Click Checkout transacts only in USD and is only available to merchants based in the United States of America.

- Login to the BigCommerce Control Panel.
- Navigate to Advanced Settings > Checkout.
