About

San Francisco-based Bolt, founded in 2014, manages the back-end of digital checkouts to gives retailers and consumers more choice, control and flexibility over their transactions.

The platform combines lightning-fast checkout, payment processing and fraud protection with full chargeback coverage.

Levelling the e-commerce playing field, Bolt offers merchants a simple but powerful checkout solution that increases conversion rates while eliminating fraud.

Our investment

Bolt has been defining checkout long before anyone saw it as a category. We have been proud to back the company across every round since the Series A in 2018.
