Bold Commerce Rolls Out Headless Checkout for Retail Brands on WordPress and WooCommerce

AUSTIN, Texas and WINNIPEG, Manitoba–(BUSINESS WIRE)–bold trade, the e-commerce technology company that powers payment and subscription experiences for leading DTC retailers and brands, today announced the launch of its headless Payment experience, designed for WordPress and WooCommerce. WooCommerce’s new native checkout alternative allows brands to fully personalize their checkout experiences, dramatically improve conversion rates, and integrate shopping experiences into other digital channels. Brands selling on WordPress and WooCommerce can now scale without losing performance, while increasing their loading speed by up to 400% and combating up to 30% lost revenue due to cart abandonment.

Brands are currently balancing the need to address cart and checkout abandonment on their traditional e-commerce platforms, while actively seeking selling options beyond these platforms through owned and third-party digital experiences. . According to The payment reference of Bold Commerce, nearly half (48%) of shoppers who pass the cart through the payment funnel abandon before completing their purchase. And on mobile, the number is even higher: 58% abandon their purchase after going from shopping cart to checkout, but before completing their order.

For brands selling on WordPress and WooCommerce, known issues threaten their ability to scale as site traffic and sales increase. Using multiple plugins during checkout reduces site speed and creates a longer checkout flow at times when shoppers are most active, resulting in above-average checkout abandonment rates. When their sites experience high volumes of visitors and concurrent transactions, brands stand to lose up to 30% of their potential income. Additionally, attempts to address these site stability and performance issues typically require an increase in server capacity, which increases operating costs.

Bold Checkout gives fast-growing brands an option to enhance their checkout experiences without the risk, cost, or complexity of a new platform. Enterprise-grade SaaS payment replaces up to 20-30 WooCommerce plugins with a single, efficient integration compatible with open source WordPress and WooCommerce ecosystems. As a result, brands using WooCommerce can achieve checkout speeds of up to 400% faster. Plus, Bold Commerce’s one-click checkout drastically reduces the time shoppers spend at checkout, also contributing to higher conversion rates.

Enterprise brands using WordPress with WooCommerce can now achieve both of these things simultaneously.

Bold Checkout scales for businesses by allowing them to personalize the checkout experience using an API-based architecture.

It also increases customer lifetime value and introduces recurring revenue through its integrated subscription offering.
