When you set up a Bolt account, we securely save your payment and shipping details so that you can quickly check out across every store participating in the Bolt Network.
Bolt uses tokens to represent your sensitive information, such as credit card details, during transactions. This is better than using encryption methods, because a token is essentially a randomly generated code word that cannot be solved or decrypted by bad actors.
For example, a credit card
4111 1111 1111 1111 with a CVV of
000 and expiration of
03/2024 would be randomly represented by a token like
0a0b9w493a45ab67d8a9. Outside of the participating system, this token is meaningless. Tokens also expire and are re-generated over time.
Bolt accounts use a combination of one-time passwords and single sign-on technology to put you in the checkout express lane. With a Bolt account, you’ll never have to waste time setting up a store account for a one-time-only purchase, or miss out on rewards points because guest checkout is just easier than trying to remember your login information.
When you discover a new store participating in the Bolt Network, you can log in and automatically used your saved information to check out. You can manage your payment and shipping information from any participating store’s checkout. Updates persist across all participating store checkouts.
