Bold Cashier is a powerful e-commerce app that provides your store with additional functionalities that are not available with your current Shopify checkout. This includes the ability to offer subscription products with our Bold Subscriptions integration, and offer additional payment methods within the checkout.
Bold Cashier uses its own processes to charge and capture the orders that customers place on your store. This allows the app to be integrated with many of our current apps, along with an entire suite of third-party app integrations as well.
At this time, Bold Cashier is unavailable for installation via Shopify. This is due to the re-evaluations and restrictions created on payments being processed by third-party checkouts on their platform. If your store has installed our Bold Cashier app prior to January 20th, 2020 - you will be able to continue using this app as it is grandfathered on your store.
When Bold Cashier is installed to your store, all of the liquid code is automatically added to your theme files. The checkout is ready to process orders as soon as the set-up for our app is completed.
Bold Cashier will have to be enabled once you are ready to use it. This can be fully enabled, or enabled in development mode.
Bold Cashier is also available and listed as Bold Checkout on BigCommerce, and is still available for installation.
At this time, Bold Cashier is free to use on a monthly basis, but does charge a 1% transaction fee on all orders that pass through this checkout. Transactions may also be subject to fees charged by the payment gateways.
How Bold's transaction fee is charged is dependant on which payment gateway your store currently has connected to our app.
If you started using Bold Cashier prior to May 1st, 2021, you will continue to pay .5% for your transaction fees.
With Stripe, the transaction fee is taken off before the payment is deposited into your bank account. This means when Stripe does a payout, it has all of our transaction fees deducted for purchases made through the Cashier checkout.
Once this is completed, a summary of all the fees that have been paid for your store for the previous month will be sent to you. You should receive this on the 1st of each month.
Using Braintree, or any other supported payment gateways
Braintree and other payment gateways do not support the same fee structure as Stripe does. When connecting these payment gateways you will be required to add a credit card.
This means that there would be a monthly charge to your credit card, after your store's revenue has been deposited to your account through your payment gateway. This will be charged on the 1st of each month, at approximately 10am CST.
Connecting a payment gateway will prompt for a credit card to be attached. This card will be used for charging the Cashier transaction fees.
