Bold provides an Adobe Commerce extension that enables merchants to take advantage of the world-class Bold Checkout experience without needing to replatform.


Bold Checkout supports users of both Adobe Commerce (formerly known as Magento 2) and Magento Open Source.

Supported Adobe Commerce versions

Bold Checkout supports both the enterprise Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source products. The following versions are supported:

  • Version 2.3
  • Version 2.4

Supported payment gateways

The Adobe Commerce integration is compatible with all Bold-supported payment gateways.


Bold strongly recommends using PayPal Complete Payments (PPCP) or Braintree as payment gateways with Adobe Commerce. The merchant is not charged Bold Checkout fees on these platforms.

When using the PayPal Checkout Flow, you must use PPCP as your payment gateway.

Refer to the following table for our support of alternative payment methods on PPCP and Braintree (such as wallet/express pay):


Payment Booster inserts the Secure Payments Interface (SPI) into an otherwise unchanged checkout. This means that if you are using Payment Booster, Google Pay and Apple Pay are not supported.
