9 Best DocuSign Alternatives for 2023 (Free and Paid)

Looking for some DocuSign alternatives?

DocuSign is a popular tool for capturing electronic signatures, but some users find its entry-level plan a bit costly for the features it provides.

Fortunately, there are quite a few DocuSign alternatives. We’ll cover 9 great ones in this article!

Does Google Docs Support Electronic Signatures?

You can create digital signatures in Google Docs, using the drawing tool. In your Google Docs document, head over to the menu and click Insert » Drawing » New.  This will open up a new window where you can draw your digital signature or simply insert some text if you prefer.

This won’t always be the best solution though. You might need a tool that integrates well with your WordPress website, or you might simply need a solution that allows you to create electronic signatures in PDF documents.

Whatever your needs are, we’ve got you covered. Read on to see 9 more of the best alternatives to DocuSign.

The Best DocuSign Alternatives For 2023

1. WPForms Signature Addon

Signature in WPForms

Did you know WPForms can capture electronic signatures using its Signature Addon plugin? With this plugin, you can turn form entries into signed contracts, non-disclosure agreements, sales orders, and service agreements.

The Signature Addon allows your visitors to agree to your terms by signing them electronically. This works on both desktop and mobile devices. On mobile devices, in particular, you can draw your electronic signatures using the mouse or your finger.

This means you can save a lot of time, and paper too! Ordinarily you would have to go through a potentially tedious back and forth email routine to get your contracts signed. Now users can simply log on to your website, sign a document and you’ll receive the notification by email. 

The WPForms Signature Addon comes with the paid version of WPForms. So you’ll need to buy this first. Once you have, log in to your WPForms account. Once in, click on Account » Downloads.

WPForms downloads

Here you can download both WPForms Pro and the Signature Addon. Hopefully, you already know how to install plugins. You’ll need to install them both.

Alternatively, if you’ve already installed the WPForms Pro plugin, you can install the Signature Addon from within your WordPress dashboard. To do this, simply follow our straightforward guide on how to install addons in WPForms.

To create a new form with the signature field enabled, hover over the Forms tab in your WordPress dashboard then select Add New. This will open up a new interface where you may choose from several form templates.

Templates library

Some of these helpful templates include things like registrations, contracts, sales orders, and other useful business documents.

You can choose from the templates provided or build your own. Whichever your choice, you can always add a signature field to your forms.

Signature field

All you have to do is scroll down to Signature from the form builder (on the left side of the page). Drag and drop the signature field onto the form, wherever you would like it to be.

That’s it!

Wherever you choose to display the form, including on private access pages, users will be able to draw their signature into the signature field using their mouses or their finger.

The signature will then be saved as an image file, and you will be notified by email. And to make it easy for you to receive signed documents in your email, we don’t send you the actual signature image file. Instead, we simply send you a notification email with a link to the signature.

WPForms Signature Key Features:

  • Seamless integration with WordPress websites
  • Pre-built templates
