Signing the contract
Once you have sent the contract to be signed, the signee will receive an email that looks like this.
If the signee is not happy to sign, they can reject the contract. Click on this link to find out what happens if a signee hits “Reject”.
If the signee is happy to sign, they will click on the Signature field. The contract’s status will be marked as “In progress” until all parties have signed.
The following box will open up. Here the signee can:
draw their signature (with their mouse or touchscreen)
upload a ready-made signature from their computer
render their signature (type the desired text and choose a font for it)
Once the signee is happy with their signature, they will click “Sign”.
For security, a 6-digit code will be sent to the signee’s email. Once received, the signee will enter it at the top to confirm their signing of the contract.
Now the document shows as “Signed” and the signee will receive an email confirming this.
This confirmation email will include 3 attachments:
A HTML copy of the signed contract
A PDF copy of the signed contract
An audit certificate confirming the following:
time and date of the contract’s completion
the details of the parties involved, namely who created it and who signed it
parties' email addresses
parties' device IPs
It will also include a link to verify that the document is original and has not been tampered with.
