Notifications in Bold Checkout

  • Updated

Bold Checkout provides both merchant facing admin notifications and customer facing abandoned cart email notifications.



Admin notifications

Bold Checkout will notify you of any issues with the app. Red notifications are critical and blue notifications are informational. These appear as a bell icon on the top right corner of the Bold Checkout admin. If you do not see the bell icon, there are no outstanding issues.



Abandoned cart email notifications

Bold Checkout allows you to send abandoned carts to customers who weren't able to complete their purchase(s).

Because Bold Checkout uses its own checkout process, these emails must be enabled and customized before they can be sent.

Note: BigCommerce's abandoned cart emails will not be sent for orders that are processed through Bold Checkout.

  1. From within Bold Checkout, select Orders, then Abandoned Cart Settings.
  2. Select the Enable abandoned cart emails

    Note: Leaving this disabled will not send abandoned cart emails to your customers.

  3. Choose the wait time of sending the email after the cart is abandoned.
  4. Select Do you want to allow multiple emails to be sent in a 24 hour period. (optional)
  5. Edit the Subject Line as needed.
  6. Edit the Email Content as needed.
  7. Select Save.
