Are your contracts legally binding? This WordPress Contract Plugin is, so that you can build, track and sign contracts using your WordPress website.

WP E-Signature is a powerful eSignature WordPress plugin that makes it easy to send, track and eSign your freelancer, designer and photography contracts using your WordPress website (not somebody else’s).

You’ve probably known for years that you should be protecting yourself and your company with legally binding documents and contracts, but the time, effort (and cost) to send a document using a third party service (or god forbid the old paper contract method) has been far too much.

It’s a no brainer for anyone who has to sign contracts and has a WordPress website. This one decision saves business owners hundreds of hours every year (and an average of $635 dollars per year).
