No more faxing!

It is 2013 and we are still printing dead trees, signing them with pen and faxing them over. If your form requires online signature to be finalized you do not need to waste any more time with the fax step. There is no difference between a Jotform form that has been submitted with an e-signature and a form that has been signed on paper and faxed to you.

Works on Mobile Browsers

Jotform e-signature is tested on iPads, iPhones and Android phones. It just works! The large size of the signing area allows your users to easily enter their signatures.

What Kinds of Forms may need E-signatures?

E-signature can be used on contracts, application forms, registration forms, online petitions, forms that require terms of service agreements, non-disclosure agreements, incident reporting, and human resources forms.

Legally Binding

E-signatures are legally binding in a great many countries, including the US, but we still recommend consulting with your lawyer.

Jotform records the IP address and time of the signature made so that also provides additional confirmation about the signer of the document.

Try it now!

You can create your first e-signature form right away! Simply add a Signature field to your form under Basic elements on the Form Builder.

You can also use our DocuSign or Adobe Sign integrations which are listed under Widgets tab.

E-signature field is under the Jotform Form Widgets gallery as well. So, to add it, you should click Add to Form after clicking on the signature widget you would like to use.
