Legal Validity

It is identified as an approval in every sense as a wet ink signature is. If this is the case, why opt for the traditional and complicated means of signing documents using wet ink.

Key Considerations in Signing Documents Online

Electronic/digital signatures are as convenient as convenient gets. Hence, there is a possibility you are thinking signing documents online automatically sifts the pain out of the signing process. True, but only to an extent. There are still a lot of considerations to make before moving on to sign documents online.

Confirm understanding of the document you are signing

This is rather basic. It is important you understand the document put before you in its entirety before appending your signature. Truth be told, signing a document online feels a little less formal than doing so on paper.

Consequently, there is a tendency not to take it that seriously. However, since the signature will be as legally binding as a wet-ink signature, you should take the time to familiarize yourself with the document’s content first.

Record retention

Most digital signing platforms allow you to send the signed document to as many recipients as possible, an important perk of using them. However, a bigger advantage will be if the platform you choose has some forms of record retention. Does the platform deliver a signed copy to your inbox for safekeeping? Or do you need to make provisions for that yourself? Whatever the case may be, it is important you have a copy of the signed documents.
