BigCommerce, Bolt Partner on One-Click Checkout

Online Shopping

Open Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) eCommerce platform BigCommerce announced a partnership with checkout and shopper network Bolt on Monday (March 14) to give BigCommerce merchants the chance to integrate Bolt One-Click Checkout.

Bolt can be pre-built into merchants’ BigCommerce stores, which allows them to offer secure one-click transactions. Through Bolt, merchants have access to the tens of millions of checkout-ready shoppers, allowing them to shop with a single identity across a merchant’s site, removing log-in or password requirements and establishing an instant connection.

“The last two years have accelerated changes in what consumers expect to get out of their shopping experience, where trends like buy online, pickup in-store (BOPIS), buy now, pay later (BNPL) and payments processing, are rapidly gaining traction,” said Russell Klein, chief commercial officer for BigCommerce, in the joint press release.

Bolt’s agnostic architecture also allows merchants to connect to existing payment solutions. Merchants can turn on Bolt via the BigCommerce Control Panel without lengthy implementations, and may see increased conversion rates, further customer reach, flexible integration, data insight and easy configuration.

“Shoppers expect a seamless checkout experience, whether they’re purchasing from a local boutique or a huge global retailer, so it’s crucial that these businesses provide the same quick, easy checkout that the biggest platforms do,” said Bob Buch, chief business officer of Bolt, in the joint press release.
