Let’s say you have a document you need to sign and return, but it’s too complicated to send as an attachment. Maybe it has several pages, or maybe it’s in a format that makes it hard for your recipient to open it on their device. Maybe you’re a freelancer who wants to ensure your clients don’t sign contracts they haven’t read in full. Signing PDFs online is the answer! To request signature on PDF, some things must be kept in mind. These tips allow you to control your documents while making things easy for everyone involved. Here’s how:
Choose the right service
Several services can help you sign a PDF online. It’s important to choose a service that has a good reputation and provides secure, reliable services. You should also check the costs of using different services, as well as how easy they are to use and whether or not customer support is available.
Verify your identity
At this point, you should have your document open in a PDF reader and be ready to sign it. To verify your identity, you’ll need to upload a photo of an official form of ID (a driver’s license or passport). You’ll then be prompted to enter the last four digits of your Social Security number.
The next step is signing the document. To do this, click on the signature box in the bottom right corner of the document and select “Sign” from the dropdown menu at top right. This will open up another window with a bit more fine print explaining how signing electronically works (i.e., that it’s not as secure as faxing or mailing), along with some information about how many times you can legally revoke or change your signature after signing electronically (three).
Start a new document
The first step is to start a new document. When you do this, you will have the option of entering your name and email address in order to save your work for future use. Additionally, you must enter a document title and description so that the PDF file will be clear about its contents.
You can also choose a password if you want extra security or want to share the file with others who do not need access to editing tools like Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat.
Upload the PDF file. Once you’ve signed up for a DocuSign account, simply log into your account and click on Upload Files from the top bar. Then click Browse to find the PDF file you want to upload.
Sign by typing or drawing
Signing by typing or drawing is one of the most common ways to sign a document. To sign using this method, you’ll need to type your name in the text box that appears when you hover over “Sign” on an online PDF. Once you’ve typed your name, click on “Sign” above it and choose from one of three options: Draw signature (for drawing with a mouse), Sign Now (to use touch screen devices) or Pencil tool (for drawing with a pen).Adobe Acrobat state, “You can quickly send a document for e-signing.”
Save and store the document securely
After you’ve signed the document and saved it to your computer, make sure that you save a copy of the original file on your computer. If you don’t have a backup, go back to the email where you received it and send yourself another copy.
