ESignature Service Pricing: Recurring vs Pay as Needed

If you only need a few signatures, consider esignature services with pay as needed pricing.

Electronic signatures are also know as esignatures. They are the solution for fast and easy signing because they eliminate delays and enable anyone to sign while on the move. People can sign on a phone, tablet, or laptop.  Esignatures are also environmentally friendly as they eliminate printers and paper. There is a lot of different esignature software to choose from, and each esignature service pricing can vary. Let’s take a look at how:


Most of the electronic signature services requires a monthly subscription. For example, DocuSign starts at $10 per month for a single user and limits the number of documents for signage to five per month. Another popular service is Adobe. It’s esignature service pricing is also based on a monthly subscription. With subscription based pricing, you pay a fee on a recurring basis whether you use the service or not. So if you need a lot of esignatures on a regular basis, then an esignature service with a recurring subscription may work for you.

Pay as Needed

In contrast to recurring pricing, pay as needed means that you only pay when you need the service. So with some electronic signature services, if there are months when you do not use the service, you are not charged anything. For example, eSignToday charges $0.50 for each esignature. There is no recurring pricing, so it is a good choice for anyone who doesn’t need many documents signed on a regular basis.
