Our Commitment to Bolt Retailers During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for retailers across the spectrum. Businesses are responding to gaps in their supply chain, disruptions in operational logistics and cash flow, dramatic drops or spikes in demand, and more. To strengthen our commitment to our retail partners, we’ve committed additional resources to help you during this challenging time.

Below are some of the resources we’ve made available to help you navigate this dynamic situation.

We are doubling down on our commitment to our partners and are focused on keeping our platform operational, scalable, and financially resilient during this challenging time.

Dispute management

Bolt is anticipating increased chargebacks during these times. In the event you receive chargeback disputes, we remain ready and willing to assist you in representment.

To help streamline the process, we recently released a short e-learning video on best practices for winning chargeback disputes.

During this rapidly changing environment, it’s important to be transparent with your customers about shipping timelines and delays. Keep your customers informed of important updates by enabling Bolt’s custom banner notices in checkout.

Please reach out to your Success Manager if you are interested in enabling this feature.
