Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply to become an online notary with OneNotary?
To become an online notary with OneNotary, simply register with us and fill out an application form. You will receive a confirmation email once we verify your information. This usually takes a few hours. Follow the link to set up your notary profile. You can immediately start providing notary services for your clients.
How does OneNotary perform ID verification and credential analysis?
OneNotary has a partnership with IDology to ensure the signer's identity. Identity verification requires two steps. First, the signer must answer specific questions that confirm their identity. Second, the signer must photograph the front and back of their driver's license using a smartphone. The signer then sends these images through an encrypted channel where they undergo a multi-layered identity analysis. Only signers with a confirmed identity can proceed with the online notarization session.
What documents can be notarized on OneNotary?
With the OneNotary platform, you can notarize any document permitted by your state for online notarization. Each state has different laws. If it's legal to perform remote notary service on it in your state, you can sign it on OneNotary. You don't need special equipment, but you must upload an electronic version of your document. We support the most commonly used text and image formats. The document size should not exceed 25 MB.
Do I need special equipment to perform online notarization?
To use the OneNotary platform, you need a web browser such as Google Chrome or Safari. To perform an online notarization, both the notary and the signer must have a reliable internet connection, a video camera, a speaker, and a microphone.
How do I invite clients to an online notarization session?
You can email invitations to your clients directly from the OneNotary platform. Once you send an invitation, your client has 7 days to respond.
What happens during an online notarization session?
The online notarization session starts when the notary presses the "Start Session" button. The notary and the signer then meet virtually in the same session window. The notary confirms the signer's identity and describes the next steps. The signer fills in the required information and signs the document electronically. After this, the notary attaches a digital notarization seal and, if necessary, a notarization certificate. Once the notarization is complete, the notary closes the session. The notarized document is available to the signer immediately afterward.
How does the signer pay for remote online notarization?
The cost for a remote online notarization of a single document with one signature is defined by the state where the notary is commissioned. We collect all payments from signers. Before beginning the online notarization session, the signer must enter their credit card details. OneNotary preauthorizes the credit card. The payment goes through once the notarization is completed.
How does OneNotary protect your personal confidential information?
OneNotary partners with industry leaders to provide secure identity verification, payment collection, and encrypted data storage. Every session takes place in a secure virtual environment. All confidential information that we are not required to keep is deleted.
