The checkout experience is so important - one of the top three most important factors of the site. Bolt made it possible for us to implement a fast and easy single-click checkout that allows our customers to complete their purchase in a matter of seconds.”

The checkout problem

Hundreds of shopping carts and site builders have surfaced over the last two decades to meet the growing demands of ecommerce. While these solutions provide strong shopping experiences, they were never designed to handle the complexity of the checkout experience.

Why you need a checkout experience platform

Over 70% of shoppers abandon carts in a scenario we call the conversion problem — and this number jumps to 85% on mobile. Fraud is an ever-present threat during checkout, and manual order review is a revenue drain on retailers. Checkout add-ons today are difficult, costly, and require constant upgrades and maintenance.

Why having a checkout experience platform matters

Optimizing at the bottom of the funnel is hard, and often overlooked. Today, shoppers expect a fast and seamless shopping experience. And yet, friction in the checkout still remains a top reason why shoppers don’t complete their purchase.

Focusing on shopper-centric checkout experiences that are hyper optimized to your shopper’s unique needs and preferences, without sacrificing speed and security, is the key to boosting your conversion rates and converting one-time shoppers into lifelong fans.

Implementation was a simple process and Bolt handled the entire process with very little involvement from me. Bolt's support team is first class and makes you feel like you're truly a partner.”
