How Bolt works with existing card processors

For your customer to have a streamlined experience inputting their credit card information, Bolt will automatically disable duplicate instances of your payment processor to prevent confusion for your shoppers. Doing so ensures that Bolt is displayed as “Credit/Debit Card”.

Because you have successfully integrated with Bolt One-Click Checkout, Bolt will now be a gateway between your checkout and your payment processor.

This does not disable payment providers' transactions from your site, nor does it disable your payment processor or alternative payment methods.

Why does Bolt remove these fields?

We remove redundant fields to simplify the appearance of your checkout.

Without Redundant Fields Removed With Redundant Fields Removed (Recommended)
Without extra fields disabled, shoppers will see a “Bolt” field and a “Credit Card” field, both of which transact directly through your payment processor. With extra fields disabled, shoppers will only see one “Credit/Debit Card” field, which Bolt uses to send transactions to your payment processor, while still allowing you to take advantage of our One-Click features.
Without Disabled Fields With Disabled Fields

Bolt will only disable duplicate credit card processors when it is the same one connected to your Bolt account. If you are using a card processor that is not supported by Bolt, you must disable these other card processors manually.

Step 4: Configure Capture Settings

After you connect your desired payment processor, you need to configure transaction Capture Settings.

  1. In the Capture Settings dropdown, select the desired capture method.

    Option Definition Example Also Known As…
    Auto-capture The system captures funds at point of purchase. The system charges the user’s card when they purchase the item. Immediate Capture
    Manual Captures funds either partially or in full at a later date upon explicit confirmation from the merchant. This confirmation can be manual or can be automated through a shopping cart integration. For example, the system charges the user’s card after the item is marked as “shipped” by the merchant. Delayed Capture
  2. Click Connect [Processor Name], where the [Processor Name] is the processor you selected.

If, in the future, you need to change your capture settings, create a ticket with Bolt Support and request the change.

Step 6: Enable Alternative Payment Methods (APMs)

In the event that your APMs were disconnected from your checkout during this process, you’ll see a message letting you know that you may need to reconnect your APM.

We recommend you select “Yes” and re-enable your APMs directly into the checkout. BigCommerce will take you through the flow you need to properly configure your settings.

This action will disable both credit card payments and {{Your APM}}.
