Magento 1

Bold provides a Magento 1 extension that equips merchants with a world-class checkout experience and enables them to maintain proper PCI compliance.

Adobe ended support for their Magento 1.x ecommerce platform on June 30, 2020. Since that date, Magento 1 merchants have been responsible for their own security and fraud compliance.

The Bold Checkout solution for Magento 1 enables merchants to maintain their PCI compliance while avoiding the pain and cost of re-platforming.


Bold's focus remains on basic integration support for Bold-Hosted Checkout, with no immediate plans for extensive Magento integration expansion or platform-level modifications.

Bold Checkout Implementation

Bold provides a Bold-Hosted checkout implementation on Magento 1, enabling you replace your current checkout with the proven Bold Checkout three-page or one-page checkout experience.


Bold Checkout also features a "dual checkout" configuration option, which enables you to run Bold Checkout alongside your Magento 1 checkout. This is a great option if you want to use Bold Checkout for only certain payment gateways.
