Bold Commerce Collaborates with PayPal Bringing Payments and Commerce Together

Bold Commerce Collaborates with PayPal Bringing Payments

Bold commerce, the leading ecommerce technology company powering checkout and subscription experiences for leading retailers and DTC brands, has announced a new integration with the financial technology comapny PayPal.

PayPal is working with Bold Commerce to integrate payments and commerce as it enters headless commerce. This integration will allow retailers and brands to leverage Bold Commerce's headless checkout suite and the PayPal Commerce Platform to develop sales channels beyond their traditional website and accept all payment methods, including Venmo, PayPal, PayPal Pay Later, and credit cards.

With over half of the shoppers (53%) leaving checkout before finishing their purchase, retailers have long recognized the need for improved checkout. Still they have previously disregarded it as too expensive and difficult to change. However, to increase conversion and business growth, retailers must offer customized checkout experiences based on shoppers' profiles and buying behavior (e.g., device, touchpoint, location). This necessitates extending the checkout experience outside typical ecommerce channels in order to meet customers where they are, with the flexibility to offer payment choices that match their preferences.

The partnership between PayPal and Bold Commerce enables retailers to accomplish this by combining payments and checkout into a single, pre-integrated solution. Now, retailers can place checkout options wherever consumers interact, such as on blogs, social media, and with QR codes on packaging. In addition, retailers can use a single payment service to manage and accept a wide variety of payment methods, including Venmo, PayPal, the PayPal Pay Later solution, debit and credit cards, and other local payment methods.

By combining Bold Checkout with PayPal's more than 430 million active accounts, the partnership paves the way for the largest global cross-merchant network impact in ecommerce.By using both PayPal and Bold Commerce, retailers may enhance their revenue through a higher checkout conversion rate and new shoppable touchpoints. Additionally, through Bold's checkout experience suite, retailers can leverage a headless, all-in-one payment and checkout solution to increase sales without incurring the cost and downtime time involved to re-platform.

Founded in 2012, Bold is an app developer that strives to increase platform capabilities with technology to help brands grow while still providing excellent service. Its Checkout Experience Suite is the only customizable, high-converting, headless checkout with built-in subscription and pricing capabilities, enabling a checkout without limits.

Finastra | February 21, 2024

Finastra's Filogix team has unveiled new generative AI (Gen AI) capabilities in its Expert Pro Canadian Mortgage Point of Sale (POS) solution.

The content can be reviewed, edited and then sent for underwriting much faster, as compared to the traditional manual process. Content can be auto-composed in English or French, and brokers can choose the format and which elements of the mortgage application to include for a more tailored and personalized experience. Jonathan Wootten, Head of Filogix at Finastra said, "We're very proud of this significant milestone. As a leader in financial technology solutions, we are committed to harnessing the power of Gen AI to enhance our own business processes, as well as to bringing exciting innovations to our customers.

This mirrors the enthusiasm we see in the marketplace for the new functionality in our Expert Pro solution for brokers. We look forward to continuing to bring our customers opportunities to tap into the innovative and transformative technology that is Gen AI." The Auto-Compose functionality has a secure private model at the core, which stands out from other systems built around public models.
