  • What is Bolt?

    When we talk about Bolt as a cohesive product experience, it’s important to understand all of the separate technical pieces that must be implemented to use Bolt with a custom cart platform. Those pieces are the following:

    • The Checkout Modal
    • The Bolt API
    • The Merchant API
    • Transaction Status Webhooks

  • How Bolt Interacts

    Now that we’ve covered the general components of Bolt in Part One of our Developer’s Guide, let’s dive into some specifics about how Bolt is communicating with your e-commerce platform. This article is a high-level framework tackling information found in our Bolt API Reference and Merchant API Reference.

  • How to Set Up Shipping & Tax Endpoints

    Use the Merchant API to handle shipping and tax information for your orders. This is required for multi-step checkout.

    How to Use the Shipping & Tax APIs

    Reach out to your CSM to have split shipping and tax enabled for your merchant account.

    Shipping API

    1. Implement the Shipping API endpoint on your server.
    2. Respond to Bolt’s order.shipping POST request from your Merchant API.
    3. Verify the authenticity of the request by confirming that it originated from Bolt.

  • Connect Route with Bolt

    The Route integration enables shoppers to purchase shipping insurance for their orders. Merchants can add Route as a product add-on after this integration is installed.

  • Location-Based Restrictions

    Merchants can use location-based shipping restrictions in their Bolt Checkout. These aid merchants who cannot ship their products to specific states or countries. Read how to enable Location-Based Shipping Restrictions.
