Hi everyone! I know there are some experts out there so I'm hoping you can help. I have a contract which is in PDF form. If the client and I are together, we can fill out the contract and sign it on my iPad (then I can save it, e-mail it, and/or print it). What I'm struggling with is when we are communicating electronically. I can send the client the PDF contract with fillable forms, where I have pre-filled as much info as possible, and they can fill in the rest, print and sign, and either scan or send it to me in the snail mail. This seems to work most of the time, as many people have a scanner these days but I'm wondering if there is a way to make this easier for those who don't have a scanner. So, how does everyone else handle this? I'd really appreciate your input! Thanks so much!
Pure electronic signing solutions are available but they are probably overkill for what you need (Docusign starts at $15/month). If the customer doesn't have access to a scanner or fax machine, I think your snail mail option is sufficient.
Thanks, Jason! It's good to know that sort of thing exists. I may need something like that in the future but I think you're right - it's probably overkill for me at this point.
I think those who don't own a scanner are used to going to FedEx/Kinkos.
They can just mail it back to you, I don't think it's as big an inconvenience as you're worried about!
