Integration Hub for Bold Checkout

Bold Checkout can integrate with many different third party apps to help you get the most out of your store. Every integration listed below is built right into Bold Checkout to help you expand on your analytics, enable Google autocomplete, integrate with other Bold apps, and more.


If your store currently uses an automated email flow, we recommend testing this with Bold Checkout before enabling the integration for your customers. This is because we are not able to guarantee that the emails for actions performed by your customers within Bold Checkout will be accurately sent through the automated email provider.

Please visit Create a Test Order with Bold Checkout for more information.

Bold Checkout uses Facebook Pixel to track how your customers interact with your store. You can use this data to plan ad campaigns, acquire new customers, and more.

In order for this integration to work, you will need a Facebook ads account. You will also need to set up a pixel in Facebook Ads Manager.

For more information along with setup instructions, please visit Facebook Pixel & Checkout Integration.

Bold Checkout integrates with Google Analytics to help you track your customer's journey through your store. These analytics help you understand your customers activity, where you need to make improvements for conversion, and more.

Google Tag Manager allows you to use tracking scripts on your store without having to modify your site code to provide you with expanded analytics on your checkout process.

  2. Select Select a project.
  3. Select your project. If you do not have a project yet, you would instead select Create Project.

  5. Select Browse to choose a location.
  6. Select the location, then choose Select.
  7. Select Create.
  8. Look for the Google Places API Web Service and Google Maps Javascript API.

    If the APIs are not listed, they can be enabled with the next steps:

  9. Select Enable API's and Services.
  10. Search for Places API, and select it.
  11. Select Enable.
  12. Search for Google Maps Javascript API.

  25. Enter the API key, and select Save.




Billing must be enabled within your Google Cloud Developer Console in order to function.

If you're seeing an error within Google Autocomplete, we highly recommend checking that you have enabled this.


Google provides a $300.00 credit when using their Google Cloud APIs and services. In order for this credit to be applied, you will be required to have a credit card / payment method available.

On the Google Cloud developer console, you will have a banner that says, "Your free trial is waiting [...]". Select activate, then follow the remaining steps to enable billing.



Bold Checkout integrates with Loqate to allow your customers to checkout way faster than before. Loqate works similarly to Google Autocomplete.

  1. Sign in to Loqate.
  2. From your dashboard, select Add service +.
  3. Select API Key.
  4. Write down or take note of your API key. You will be inputting this key in Step 7.
  5. From within the Bold Checkout app, select Settings General Settings.
  6. Under the Address Autocomplete section, select Connect next to Loqate.
  7. Enter your Loqate API key from Step 4.
  8. Select Save.



  • You cannot use Google Autocomplete and Loqate in the same checkout.
  • Loqate doesn't validate addresses - it allows your customer's fields to automatically be filled in. Customers can otherwise manually edit their address after selecting it.
  • We only support Loqate's address autocomplete for the shipping and billing address. We do not support phone number validation or email validation.
