US-based e-commerce platform BigCommerce has partnered with checkout and customer network Bolt to offer single-click checkout capabilities to all its merchants.
The partnership will enable BigCommerce’s small, medium and enterprise-sized merchants to integrate Bolt’s One-Click Checkout into their operations.
Bolt can be pre-built into merchants’ BigCommerce stores, which allows them to offer safe frictionless single-click transactions.
The integration of Bolt’s more than 160 solutions across the company is expected to drive engagement and increase conversion rates by up to 53%, as well as extend customer reach.
BigCommerce chief commercial officer Russell Klein said: “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.
“Having the right technology and infrastructure in place is essential for merchants to deliver on those expectations while focusing on the business at hand.
“Expanding the availability of Bolt to all of our merchants will enable those store owners to further refine and optimise their checkout and overall conversion rates strategies, while still preserving their access to the myriad payment and other technology partner solutions that they also want to deploy.”
Bolt chief business officer Bob Buch said: “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.
“We’re extremely pleased to offer this more deeply integrated solution that enables BigCommerce merchants to keep their existing guest checkout, while taking advantage of the increased conversion rate enabled by Bolt’s built-in one-click checkout.”
Earlier this month, BigCommerce announced a partnership with final-mile digital delivery platform Deliveright to use automation for heavy goods deliveries.
