What freelancers need to know about online signing

If you are self-employed, your contract is often a key issue. Failure to pay attention to it, delays in signing, may be the subject of a dispute or result in the loss of the order.
Signing agreements online is a great solution for conscious freelancers and solo entrepreneurs.

Remote signing is a really small investment and the cost is paid back very quickly. It’s also a great way to keep protected against dishonesty of those commissioning work.

Take a look at an example.

Chris is a graphic designer. He gets a lucrative order to create a poster for an event. But time goes by, and signing the contract “is just a formality,” so he agrees to get started on it before it’s formal. He makes a poster, but clients change it a lot.

In his regular contract, he’s paid extra for the third round. Despite that, the client ignores this provision, explaining the contract is still being checked and, besides, the client doesn’t like Chris work so he’s afraid of getting paid.

Freelancers can be protected by e-signature

When you’re working alone, both the quality of the agreement and the process matter a lot. Remote signing not only helps organize and protect work, but also makes it more valuable to work together. When choosing a contractor, clear, transparent rules are often a big factor – do we work with this person or another?

If the agreement needs to be sent, it’s easier to do it digitally than to print, scan, and mail it. Online signing is also useful if you don’t provide services every day, but occasionally need to agree.
