Consumer expectations aren’t what they used to be. 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) and buy now, pay later (BNPL) are rapidly gaining traction. 

Perhaps the biggest trend we see in the ecommerce landscape is in payment processing. When shoppers add a product to their cart, they expect a seamless checkout process with as little friction as possible. 

As always, technology has evolved to meet rising consumer expectations. One-click checkout has become one of the easiest ways merchants can create a frictionless experience for customers. Data from Bolt One-Click show that enabling one-click checkout can Increase conversions by 53%.

At BigCommerce, we’re dedicated to providing our merchants with tools to make ecommerce easier and keep up with consumer trends and expectations. Not only that, but we also want to ensure that our merchants’ customers are getting a high-quality, frictionless experience on their site.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Bolt to integrate their solution onto our powerful ecommerce platform.* 

Frictionless Checkout Means Higher Conversions

One-click checkout is more important than ever before. According to a new report from SalesForce, 56% of customers expect to find whatever they need from a company in three clicks or less. When those three clicks mean the difference between a sale and an abandoned cart, ecommerce sites must provide a clear path to checkout. 

As we began the Bolt integration on our platform, we quickly found it resonated with purchasers. During Cyber Week 2021, we saw that 9% of all Cyber Week purchases on our platform were made using Bolt. Considering that the integration was still in the closed beta phase, the trend is clear: users want the ease and convenience of one-click checkout and gravitate toward this solution.
