What is Bolt One-Click Checkout?
Bolt One-Click Checkout is a Bolt product that serves multiple customers:
Retailers: Bolt Checkout enables a hassle-free, secure one click checkout experience and gives the Bolt One-Click Checkout to 11 million shoppers 一 even if they’ve never been at your site before. Get 50% higher checkout conversion rates, more repeat purchases, and higher AOV with Bolt One-Click.
Shoppers: Shoppers will avoid the headache of remembering passwords and filling out lengthy forms 一 every shopper in the Bolt network gets an expedited shopping experience.
How does One-Click Checkout differ from the standard BigCommerce checkout process?
Bolt provides a cross-retailer accounts network for consumers shopping online. This allows shoppers to sign up only once across merchants in the Bolt network. Once a shopper visits a Bolt merchant, they experience a one click checkout - thanks to saved address and payment information.
As a result, shoppers can experience a One-Click Checkout experience on all sites in the BigCommerce + Bolt Network. Because the experience is added onto your checkout, the checkout looks and feels native without navigating users off of your store.
What value does One-Click Checkout provide?
- Fewer Cart Abandonments.
- Higher Conversion Rates.
- Higher Average Order Value.
- Access to Bolt’s network of 11 million shoppers.
- Access to Merchant Analytics in the Bolt Merchant Dashboard.

How do I access my Bolt Account?
If you are not immediately logged in during the sign up and set up process, you should receive an invitation email from firstname.lastname@example.org inviting you to log into your account.
After that, you can access your Bolt Account via our Merchant Dashboard at merchant.bolt.com.
What happens if a shopper has a Bolt Account and a BigCommerce Account?
In the event that your shopper has a BigCommerce Store Account (or, while you are running tests and also have a BigCommerce Store Account), BigCommerce Store Accounts will have login precedence over Bolt Shopper Accounts. This usually happens when accounts are tied to the same email.
This means that a user with a BigCommerce Store Account, as well as a Bolt Shopper Account, will be logged into their BigCommerce Account first.
