It is 100% free to sign PDF Documents!

by PDFBEAR Joseph

PDFBear's eSignature function can be used to sign your own documents, but also request others to sign. This is a free eSign service designed to cater for everyone's needs.

Getting your documents signed will and has never been easier. PDFBear has rolled out a function that not only makes your life a lot easier, but also serves as a replacement for expensive tools that require a monthly subscription – All for free! Adobe eSign and Docusign are some of the known, but expensive options that serve the same purpose as PDFBear's eSignature tool.

How do you use PDFBear's eSign?

  1. Go to PDFBear's signature tool:  eSign PDF
  2. Select or drag your file.
  3. Choose the “Create Signature” and/or “Add Initials” option.
  4. Place the signature or initials in the document by dragging or clicking the page.
  5. To finish, click: “SIGN PDF NOW"

Add a signature to your document by clicking and selecting the option

The animation depicts how easy it is to use the sign-function. Your end result will be a document that has your signature in it, and can be shared as a file with third parties via a link. Digital signatures are frequently used on phones only, iPhones in particular, but getting a function like the eSign tool for desktop is harder to come by, especially as a free service. All that is required to get this working is a PDF file. If your file happens to be in DOC, XLS, or any other format, our website with other conversion features will be able to turn it into a PDF. You can even use our cross-links to send the PDF file straight to the eSign feature after converting it from DOCX.

Sending a document for others to add their digital signature

PDFBear's “Docusign alternative” also allows you to send a contract or document to third parties who need to add their own signature to the file.

Go through the steps of uploading and reviewing your document. Choose the option of “Others need to sign” or “Add signer” (they are the same function), and fill out the information for the recipient: First name, last name and email.

To make it easier for the recipient of this document you can choose to add stickers directing them to either put down their signatures or initials. When ready, press the “Review & Send” button. Fill out your own information and a personalized message to let them know who is sending the file and we will make sure to deliver an email to their inbox with a hyperlink for them to load the document and sign or initial where needed.

After the signee has signed and sent off the document, the stickers will be automatically removed for the final version of the document – A link to download this file will be shared with you and the signee.
