How can we improve WP E-Signature?

It would be great to just upload your own Word Doc or PDF

It would be great to just upload your own Word Doc or PDF to be signed and not have to use Gravity Forms or a template each time

We have indeed been working on 2.0 for a while. We were initially planning on releasing it 100% as a fully WordPress ran application… and got very very close to doing so; however, similar to the PCI compliance industry (i.e. the industry that regulates accepting credit cards online) there’s been an uprising of laws and regulations in the document signing industry.

So while we are very close to having 2.0 release ready we’re in the process of having to re-architect the API and set it up to run a portion of the application in our cloud while still maintaining the overall customer experience so everything still feels seamless and like it’s all taking place on YOUR site. As such there’s still some backend changes that we are quickly working to mitigate.

The good news is the team is continuing to develop the final screens that remained however, it will realistically take a little bit more time before the re-architecture of API and cloud backend is beta ready.

I apologize for the delay and understand how this affects your personal timeline… however, we really want to make sure that we can stay on top of the regulations and offer the most seamless (and compliant) integration for our customers.

    Are there updates on this, yet. This would be so helpful to us to be able to send credit card receipts and certain order forms.

    Can we get an update on this particular issue? It seems like it has been in progress for 2 years now.

    Thank you!

    Hi Mario great question... we're still finalizing the details on both.

    We have however, been in conversations with a HIPAA compliant hosting company to offer/collaborate with them on some HIPAA compliant options for both of our customers. We'll keep you updated as both progress.

    Hold on a sec... What exactly would the cloud be doing? If it is in any way receiving the documents, then this will no longer work due to HIPAA and CFPB regulations. One of the reasons we entertained the WP E-Signature solution was exactly because everything would be on our HIPAA/CFPB/PCI compliant servers/network.

    Also, I'm going to assume this would alter your pricing structure, correct?

    I agree.. I was actually waiting for this feature to buy but decided to go ahead and just work with it the way it is. But some of the forms I need signed are IRS (new hire) forms and those will be so difficult to recreate. Thanks for suggesting!
