DocuSign has launched its new payment platform, partnering with Stripe and gaining support from Apple and Google in the process.

DocuSign Payments aims to provide a “fast and easy” way to collect payments and signatures. Users will be able to link DocuSign to their Apple Pay and Android Pay apps to make payments as they complete documents.

According to the firm, it will continue to integrate new payment partners – including, Braintree and PayPal – in the coming months. Recurring payments and other functionalities are expected to be available later this year.

“We have been working with our customers for years now to take their agreements digital,” says Ron Hirson, Chief Product Officer at DocuSign. “Payments is the next step in the evolution of our DTM platform and eSignature service and it has been driven directly by those customers.

“A lot of businesses, particularly smaller organisations, are hugely affected by late payments or complete failures to collect – problems that could be the difference between meeting key targets and missing them. Combining the signing and payment processes is the natural answer to helping business transactions move even more smoothly.”

DocuSign Payments is available today in the UK, Canada, Australia and the US.
