    How can my clients sign an e-contract?

    Asked by Holly  on January 23, 2014 at 11:11 AM

    Hi! I'm a portrait photographer looking into options to have my clients e-sign my contract. I'm just wondering exactly how they sign - if they have a desktop computer, how would they be able to get their signature onto the form? Is it a "click here" to sign or do they have to upload an image of their signature? I'm assuming they could do a finger sign from a tablet or mobile device, but not everyone will have access to that. Also, I was wondering if is possible to have my cient initial each section of the contract, or even check a box for each section? Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Hi, it is possible to have your clients e-signing your contract. Click on Widgets, type "Signature"


    You can use one of the two widgets, Smooth Signature or E-Signature,  basically they both work the same. Here is an example with Smooth Signature.


    It is just a matter of drawing the signature using the mouse, and as well a finger sign can be done from a tablet or mobile divece. You can test my example.

    On regards of having your clients initial on each section of the contract, just simply add the same widget, "Smooth Signature" , on each section.

    Hope this helps, let us know if you need more assistance.
