Digital Transaction Management company DocuSign announced a new platform called DocuSign Payments today. It’s aimed at businesses that want to be able to collect payments and signatures as part of the same agreement process. The new platform is going to be released early next year in partnership with global payment processor Stripe. It will be supported by Google, Apple, and Authorize.net.
The DocuSign Payments platform will enable users to save time and effort by providing them with a swift and easy way to collect both payments and signatures in one single step.
This enables them to provide an improved customer experience, instant payment, and a contract-to-payment process without any errors. Stripe integration will provide customers the option to use Apple Pay, Android Pay or any major credit card at launch. Support for Authorize.net, PayPal, and additional payment options will be added later.
This strategic initiative will offer significant incremental value to more than 250,000 companies and 100 million users who will be able to DocuSign and pay in one easy step as part of the DocuSign Global Trust Network,” said Keith Krach, chairman and CEO at DocuSign.
Businesses will easily be able to add payments into existing signing processes. They just need to go through a brief one-time setup to link DocuSign with an existing payment gateway or sign up for one within the platform. Once it’s set up, a sender only needs to add a payment tag to their contract or agreement, that’s it. When the document is signed by the receiver, they will have the option to pay using services like Apple Pay or Android Pay as well as with a credit in more than 130 currencies.
DocuSign Payments is entering a limited beta testing phase and will be officially launched next year.
