DocuSign simplifies one step payments for Apple & Android Pay

This new payment platform will give users the freedom to use the service via most payment methods.

By Tom Ball

DocuSign has launched a new platform called DocuSign Payments in partnership with payments platform Stripe, and it is now available to customers across the UK.

The platform is intended to provide an easy way to collect payments and signatures in a single step. Businesses are included in DocuSign’s target area, with the aim of tackling the problem of delays in receiving payment, or complete failure to collect.

A central element of the new platform is that it will allow users to pay using Android Pay, Apple Pay and any major credit or debit card.

DocuSign also intends to promote the new platform’s use across multiple industries, such as legal, and insurance. DocuSign Payments is aimed at being used for the completion of lease agreements, insurance policies, contractor services, event bookings, donations, accunting, tax preparation and registration renewals.

DocuSignRon Hirson, chief product officer at DocuSign: “Payments is the next step in the evolution of our DTM platform and eSignature service and it has been driven directly by those customers. A lot of businesses, particularly smaller organisations, are hugely affected by late payments or complete failures to collect – problems that could be the difference between meeting key targets and missing them. Combining the signing and payment processes is the natural answer to helping business transactions move even more smoothly.”

This development is following the popular trend of automation, as the human element is extracted from many of the processes that DocuSign Payments is intended to be able to undertake. The simplification could be conducive to great reliability and efficiency.

Cristina Cordova, head of business development at Stripe: “We’re excited to work closely with DocuSign to make it possible for more than 100 million DocuSign users to easily and securely accept payments from anyone, anywhere in the world, whether they’re on a desktop or mobile device.”
