Wondering what is a signature request? Don't worry, we've got you covered.
Signature requests aren't that complicated, especially with electronic signatures! In this guide we'll talk about what they are, as well as how to request one yourself.
First, let's figure out what this is about.
A signature request means preparing at least one document and sending it to other parties so they can electronically sign it and send back to the party asking for the documents to be signed. The process is finished when the signed documents are received by the initial sender.
In simpler words, the term 'signature request' is used to talk about the whole process of sending a document for eSigning and collecting it once signed.
In most cases, signature requests are used online, with virtual documents and finished with online signatures. Though, they can also take place physically too.
