Lower your business’s chargebacks and ACH returns by up to 30 percent with secure signatures from EDoc by E-Complish. The EDoc signature service allows merchants who need reliable signed agreements to produce, send, and retrieve signed documents electronically. EDoc solutions from E-Complish help businesses that utilize recurring transactions, payment plans, or AutoPay services.
A trusted and secure EDoc service is easy for both employees and customers to use, which improves productivity for your business. With EDoc sign methods, you can increase the efficiency of sending and receiving agreements with a secure electronic signing.
How Does EDoc Work?
EDoc by E-Complish works for merchants who are using HostPay secure online payments, VirtualPay payment processing solutions, RecurPay for recurring payments, or the DevConnect API for legacy payment systems. Through EDoc, documents that need signatures can be emailed to consumers, which include pre-populated payment details and information. Consumers can then sign the agreements and approve the payment or recurring payment plan, which are sent back to the merchant for processing.
Once the EDoc is sent, it is identified as “Pending Signature” within the VirtualPay or DevConnect API, which makes it easier for merchants to track. Once the consumer electronically signs the EDoc, both the consumer and merchant are notified by email that the EDoc has been signed and is pending approval.
After the signature is received, the merchant can approve the EDoc, with the option to use user-level security, and activate the EDoc terms. Alternatively, the EDoc can be automatically activated without approval by a merchant representative by utilizing VirtualPay or DevConnect API rules.
