DocuSign Mobile SDK is a self-development kit for iOS, Android and Windows to help developers integrate eSignature and Digital Transaction Management services into their apps. With this SDK you can implement the necessary functionality to complete document-based transactions, hosting in-person signing sessions from the mobile app and document eSignatures.


Sometimes you need a document signed and is impossible to do it in person. Whether it is because there is a great distance between both parties or because their agendas don’t match, sometimes it is impossible to meet to sign important documents. This is why it is necessary for some software to do so, in a legal way. DocuSign provides you the means to get court-accepted electronic signatures for these important documents. It can handle multiple and sequential recipients and it includes a tagging system to show each recipient where to sign.

With DocuSign, the process of getting documents signed is made totally online. With the tagging system, the recipient will get clear instructions of what to do and where to sign and, the best of all, all the electronic signatures made with DocuSign are court-accepted and comply with the ESIGN act. The whole process is audited and trailed to be presented in a court of law if necessary.

The process is very straightforward and easy to follow. You can use it with your browser or from Android or iOS devices. You can even link your DocuSign account to Outlook via a third-party add-on but it is highly recommended to use it from their official website to get all the functionalities. First, what you have to do is to attach a document from your local drive or storage or from online documents. You can do this from Salesforce, Dropbox, Box Docs and Google Docs. Then you’ve got to add the recipients you want to sign the document. You can do this by typing their information or using your address book. Then you have two options for multiple addresses. You can send the document to all of them at once and, when it is signed by all the addressees it will be considered complete but you can also send it sequentially. This means you send to one recipient and once he has signed it, DocuSign will send it to the next person on the list and you can add as many recipients as you want with this system.

You can also send any message to be sent along with the documents and will be sent to every recipient in the list. You can add notes to each addressee so that the note will only appear to the right person. These notes or messages will appear automatically once the recipient is viewing the document. Last thing, you have to configure the expiration settings and a reminder if you want to do so. The reminder is an optional feature that will send a reminder (obviously) to the recipient if he hasn’t signed it in a number of days you specify when setting it up. It can also send reminders periodically until it is signed or expired. Every envelope sent will expire in 120 days but you can also configure it to expire earlier if not signed and also to send a warning before this happens.

Note that the sender is the only one to need the app or DocuSign software. The recipients don’t need anything to sign the documents and will be sent clear instructions about what to do to get the documents signed. Clients can get several documents at the same time and you will clearly know when they have signed it or even viewed it.

DocuSign supports a wide range of file extensions like .as, .asl, .asp, .doc, .docm, .docx, .dot, .dotm, .dotx, .htm, .html, .pdf, .pdx, .rtf, .txt, .wpd, .wps, .wpt, .dwg, .dxf, .emz, .svg, .svgz, .vdx, .vss, .vst, .bmp, .cdr, .dcx, .gif, .ico, .jpg, .jpeg, .pct, .pic, .png, .rgb, .sam, .tga, .tif, .tiff, .wpg, .dps, .dpt, .pot, .potx, .pps, .ppt, .pptm, .pptx, .csv, .et, .ett, .xls, .xlsm, .xlsx, .xlt. The file size limit is of 25mb but it is highly recommended to use 5mb or lower for a better performance.

DocuSign can also be embedded to your custom apps when you need an eSignature service. The SDK to do this is very easy to use and it is just a matter of reading a couple of tutorials on how to integrate it with your apps.

Pricing of DocuSign is very affordable although you may find other cheaper solutions online. DocuSign, however, offers some functionalities you may not find anywhere else in the market. There is a free 30-day trial with all functionalities for you to try the software and the most basic plan is $10 per month but only allows you 5 documents per month. The standard version costs $25 and allows you unlimited documents while the business pro includes many more perks like bulk send and powerforms for the price of $40 per month. There is also a separate plan for Real Estate companies and tailor-made plans for those who want to integrate the app in their software.



  • Court-approved
  • ESIGN and HIPPA compliant
  • Able to send documents sequentially
  • Can be integrated on any app
  • Many file types accepted


  • Quite pricey in the long run
  • It is eSignature software, not really good for document management
  • Advanced authentication and ID verification costs extra money


If you need an eSignature app with many features and able to read almost anything, DocuSign is a good option. It may not be the best one to manage documents but it is really safe and secure when handling eSignatures. The basic plan doesn’t allow much but with the $25 plan you can get almost all the functionalities you need for your needs. The cost to integrate it to your app is not shown in the website but the process is very easy and they are very helpful in the process.
