DocuSign, a global e-signature and digital transaction management company, has made its DocuSign Payments product available to its U.S. customers, with select international markets expected next month, according to a press release.
The San Francisco-based company said DocuSign Payments is intended to save businesses time by providing a fast and easy way to collect payments and signatures in just one step.
At launch – via the partnership with global payments platform Stripe – users can DocuSign and pay using Android Pay, Apple Pay or any major credit card.
DocuSign said it will continue to integrate new payment partners – including Authorize.Net, Braintree and PayPal – in the coming months. Automated clearing house payments, recurring payments and other functionality are expected to be available later this year.
"DocuSign has helped its customers come to agreement digitally for years," Ron Hirson, chief product officer at DocuSign, said in a statement. "The idea for payments came from those customers – particularly small business owners who struggle to collect payments on time, and sometimes can't collect at all. It was natural to evolve our DTM platform and e-signature service to offer a way for people to pay for goods or services at the same time as electronically-signing an agreement."
