You can now buy Adobe Sign priced for small businesses, which could make it much easier for your customers to do business with you.
Plenty of businesses ask their customers to sign, scan and email forms, but that’s no longer the best way to collect this type of paperwork.
Instead, it's possible to send them a form which they can electronically sign. There are various electronic signature tools that allow you to create these forms and collect legally binding electronic signatures, including Adobe Sign.
There’s now an Adobe Sign subscription plan for small businesses, which has an introductory price of $43.58 per user per month. It is for businesses that have up to 10 employees.
Unlike the Individual Adobe Sign subscription plan, the Small Business plan will allow you to publish web forms on your website that your customers can digitally sign.
You can also use it to collect customers’ signatures and their credit card, debit card or PayPal payment at the same time – if you sign up for a PayPal Braintree account. That’s another feature not include in the Adobe Sign Individual plan.
The Small Business plan also allows you to put your company brand on documents, and manage users and groups.
What about DocuSign?
The introductory Small Business price is competitive with DocuSign, another well-known electronic signature product. DocuSign’s Business Pro plan, which includes payment collection, costs $55.
But keep in mind that DocuSign Business Pro les you send SMS messages to recipients for two factor authentication. Adobe Sign reserves that feature for its more expensive enterprise version, and you’ll have to call them to ask for the enterprise price.
If you only send one or two documents a month to recipients to sign, then there’s also another option – Adobe will soon make a free, limited-use version of Adobe Sign available in its free Adobe Reader PDF-reading software. That version will let you send two documents a month for e-signatures.
