I just got a last minute type inquiry to secure my services. The couple is currently not in the U.S. due to work commitments, so they are trying to arrange everything from abroad.
I usually send my contracts out via PDF with all the pertinent information already filled in. The client would then review, print, sign, and send it back to me along with a retainer check. Haven't had any issues with this so far.
But obviously, this will not work for this one. They want to know whether there is a way to keep everything electronic, since again, they are not in the States at the moment.
What's the easiest way to get some kind of electronic signature from them?
Also, while I am asking this, I'll also ask what would be the easiest way for me to accept the retainer fee electronically. PayPal just doesn't look too professional, you know what I mean?
I always get paid via check, so this is a problem.
Thanks for your help!
