Best Practices

Once you've integrated Affirm into the Bolt checkout and conducted your tests, you'll be well-versed in the user journey and the advantages of our enhanced payment alternatives. To help you maximize the potential of Affirm, we've put together a set of best practices tailored for optimal usage and results.

Simplify the checkout experience

We suggest integrating these messages at key touchpoints: the Product Page, Cart, and Checkout.

Easily embed our promotional messaging using the affirm.js JavaScript library. Plus, Bolt is compatible with several platforms for an even smoother experience:
