Aug 17, 2022

Among FinTechs making great strides along these lines is Bolt, which takes a channel- and ecosystem-agnostic approach to one-click checkout that, as Bolt CEO Maju Kuruvilla told PYMNTS’ Karen Webster, represents the next evolution in simple, anywhere checkout. “People are buying at the point of inspiration,” Kuruvilla said. “People like to buy things online and they don’t want to be constrained with a lot of steps. We have to simplify that and provide a very simple, one-click checkout that works across all the different brands and all the different surfaces. So the future of checkout is the ability to buy things with one click, pretty much everywhere on the internet.”
