Announcing Notarize’s Free eSignature Product, Digitizing How Businesses Operate with a Single Line of Code

Over the last four years, we’ve solved some incredibly challenging problems. From notarizing documents online to completing fully digital real estate closings, our platform has more than 200 years of combined human effort invested with countless first-of-their-kind innovations to show for it.

No one thought we could digitize some of the most complicated and cumbersome industries, but four years later, we’re averaging nearly $1 billion of online real estate closings per month and powering the customer experiences of thousands of businesses across the country.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce our new free eSignature solution that makes Notarize the world’s first comprehensive digital transaction management platform. Customers can now digitize and automate their operations in a single line of code and run their business more efficiently -- all from one place.

The First Comprehensive Digital Transaction Management Platform

It’s been remarkable to observe how our customers utilize our notarization platform. It turns out that by digitizing the notary, we’ve made it possible to digitize Wills, simplify powers of attorney, open new bank accounts, and streamline countless other workflows. Facebook executive Andrew Bosworth – one of our advisors – once told us that if “Notarize solves the hard signature it could connect a lot more people to valuable services.”

We’ve done exactly that, and heralded in a new wave of business process innovation as a result.

Today, we find ourselves at the heart of industries desperate to modernize. It takes nearly a month to complete a mortgage transaction. It takes 21 days for a private wealth firm to onboard a new client. Physical, in-person notarizations weigh down countless industries, but it turns out that all of our customers also need to collect basic eSignatures to digitize their business processes end-to-end.

We set a new goal for ourselves: to help our customers streamline their entire operations. With the launch of free eSignature today, Notarize is first to digitize how businesses serve every customer across every type of transaction on a single, unified platform.

People can now complete and request unlimited eSignatures for free or solve complex business processes that require both eSigned and notarized documents.

Here are the four key components that make up Notarize’s Digital Transaction Management Platform:

  • eSignature
  • Remote Online Notarization
  • APIs and EasyLink for Developers
  • Secure Record Keeping and Validation

Sign, Send, and Notarize Any Document from One Place

With free business tools and notaries on-demand 24x7, anyone can create a Notarize account and start sending or signing documents in minutes.

Here’s how easy it is. From your Notarize account, upload the document that needs to be signed, and within minutes you can place your signature, add designations, and send it to whoever needs it.

Digitizing Business Operations with a Single Line of Code

We know first-hand how hard it is to start and grow a business. That’s why we wanted to make it simple for businesses to automate any transaction with just a line of code. With our EasyLink feature, businesses can upload any document they need signed or notarized, generate a URL or code snippet, and embed it anywhere online to automate their operations. It’s that simple.

We’ve also launched this product with developers in mind, challenging ourselves to build a native integration that any developer could get up and running with in less than 30 minutes with our free eSignature API and SDK. Even if you’re using another eSignature API, it’s just as easy to change the end point and start signing and sending documents for free.



Notarization, eSignature, and Real Estate: three highly complicated areas that demand a simple and seamless way to power the future of digital transactions.

Our vision is to be the single platform people need to start, grow and manage their business online, no matter the type of transaction. Today’s announcement puts us one step closer to that vision.

New call-to-action

You have notarization questions, we have notarization answers. While we at Notarize pride ourselves on providing helpful resources (like this blog!) to demystify notarization, we’re not lawyers and don’t give legal advice. Pro tip: always check with your own attorneys, advisors, or document recipients if you have further questions about notarization or digitally notarized docs.
