How to Send PDF for eSignature on Mac

PDFelement's Request eSign feature streamlines the secure and electronic process of collecting multiple signatures while adhering to legal and regulatory compliance standards. Industry standards adhered to include ISO 27001, HIPAA, GDPR, PDS2, Swift, CMMC, and NITES.

An email is dispatched to the recipients, requesting their signature for the agreements. Upon completion of signing, both you and the signers will receive the duly signed PDF via email. The progression of the entire signing procedure can be monitored within the Agreement panel of PDFelement for Mac.
