How it Works

The guest checkout experience varies from the logged-in experience.

When a shopper enters an email address or phone number into checkout, we check for an existing Bolt account.

  • Shoppers with Bolt accounts see the Bolt one-click modal.
  • Shoppers without Bolt accounts see the default checkout. They can agree to the terms & conditions to create their Bolt account.


An edge case can occur where shoppers have logged into the merchant storefront before they initiate checkout. If the merchant has enabled Bolt SSO, Bolt uses SSO to automatically trigger one-click checkout.
