It is not essential to use paper to obtain a legally binding signature. Electronic signatures are used by We Signature to make contract signing simpler for you and your clients.
How to Sign a Document Online
Electronic signatures are exactly what they sound like: a computerised copy of your handwritten signature. If a person’s signature is required on an electronic document, a Signature field is highlighted with a “fill and sign” button that you can edit. Although the terms “digital signature” and “electronic signature” are frequently used synonymously, they are not the same. There are two ways to digitally sign PDFs:
According to the E-Sign Act, an electronic signature is equal to a handwritten signature in terms of legal power. This in turn signifies your consent to the conditions outlined in the document you are signing. Simply said, an eSignature is your signature shown as an image on a digital document. Furthermore, the fact that it is not a physical signature alone cannot be used to rule it invalid.
Digital signatures are impenetrable and made to prevent tampering. A “hash” is produced as part of the digital signature creation procedure. When the signed document is changed or changed after the signature was applied, the program will let you know. If there are problems with credibility, the document’s legitimacy may be in jeopardy.
When Will I Require Digital Signatures?
You may create transparent signatures online to PDF files as well as other electronic documents including contracts, agreements, and invoices. The potential to organize your documents and streamline them more effectively than ever is another advantage. Each invoice won’t need to be signed with a pen, and you won’t need to consider where to put it.
