DocuSeal, a free document signing alternative

• Written by Kriti Pinto

DocuSeal is an open source document signing platform where you can create, upload and sign documents for free forever.

We believe in trust, transparency and that basic document signing should be free. That’s why we built DocuSeal - an open source document signing alternative. We created a Basic free plan that supports multiple document signers, user management, automatic eSignatures, notification emails and more for an unlimited number of documents.

We also offer premium features for businesses on top of document signing such as company logo, automated reminders, user roles and more. We can also personalize your document signing experience with custom email domains using which you can connect your Gmail and send emails from name@yourcompany.com. Visit our pricing page to find more.

We value your time so we built a lightning-fast web UI. You can enter your email and start creating documents instantly. Our powerful PDF form builder allows you to create complex PDF forms in a mobile friendly format. You can send multiple documents to multiple signers via email and text.

Why are we unique?

Existing applications like DocuSign, AdobeSign, and PandaDoc are complex, slow and outdated. They operate by serving the demands of corporate entities leaving behind a significant segment of users. Their pricing model is confusing and their implementation is unnecessarily complicated. We wanted to create a product that is accessible for everyone, from individuals and small businesses to enterprises.

But you don’t need to take our word for it listen to a happy DocuSeal customer:

I was using DocuSign until yesterday when I realized it was not at all meeting my needs which was being able to send people a simple name/signature documents, which I thought was hilarious given I was paying them. DocuSeal has already been better than Docusign so I’m switching to DocuSeal

When we thought about the best product to compete with existing document signing solutions we realized we could offer unlimited basic document signing for free. This is also something unique that we do.

This allows engineers to integrate DocuSeal into existing applications much more quickly than with legacy solutions.
