Automatic Login Improvements πŸ”—

The New

Bolt now offers device-based automatic login during checkout, which recognizes active sessions on verified devices to skip the authentication step. This feature is designed to reduce friction while keeping shoppers' data secure.

  • Unverified device: When a shopper creates a Bolt account during checkout, they do not have to complete authentication via one-time passcode, so this device is considered unverified. Logging in during checkout on another device forces logout on this unverified device to protect shoppers' personal data.

Limitations

This feature is not currently available to merchants who use SSO.

Announcement

Bolt is working on a new, API-based architecture and approach to our Magento 2 Plugin that takes advantage of Magento’s native APIs. This change will reduce the potential for bugs, improves our rate of feature development, and demands less frequent plugin upgrades.

This new plugin is expected to become available in 2022, and will be accompanied by a migration guide to help merchants switch plugins. More details will follow as the release date for this new plugin approaches.

If you are interested in participating in our Beta program for this plugin, please reach out to your Bolt representative.

The New

  • Shoppers no longer switch between Magento Store accounts when Bolt SSO is enabled on a store using the Legacy plugin.

The Bug Fixes

  • Resolved an issue where shoppers were unable to place an order when applying a fixed-amount discount towards their cart total due to how the discount impacted shipping calculations.
  • Resolved an issue where discounts applied to a cart displayed a generic nondescrispt DISCOUNT tag when missing an associated description. This caused confusion when multiple discounts were applied. Now, discounts applied to a cart display their discount name as the tag. (e.g., BOGO2022)
  • Resolved an issue where refund (credit) grand totals were mismatched when compared to order grand totals.

Magento 2 2.24.1 πŸ”—

The Bug Fixes
