To do online notarizations, you’ll need a traditional notarial commission from your
state first. If
you don’t have one already, check your
Secretary of State website for instructions
on getting started. You’ll need to upload a copy of this commission
to your account
on our platform.
Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance protects you financially if you are sued for
unintentional mistakes or
if a false claim is filed against you. To make sure you’re protected, you’ll need to
upload a copy of your
policy worth at least $25,000 to your account (most policies can be purchased for as
little as $15-30 a year).
One option for your coverage is the NNA,
though we accept other providers too.
E&O insurance is not required, but it is highly recommended.
A digital certificate, also known as a digital signature, is used to seal the documents you’ve notarized. This digital certificate attaches to the document and ensures the document is tamper-evident (i.e. any subsequent changes to the document become apparent). At Online Notary Center, we partner with IdenTrust for digital certificates. For instructions on getting your certificate, follow this link here.
Choose between our Notary Basic Plan and our Notary Professional Plan. We’ll provide your journal, seal, and signature, along with all the technology and tools needed to start performing notarizations. See our Pricing for details on each of our plans.
The online form asks for the following information:
- Commissioned number
- Commission expiration date
- Your chosen technology vendor/provider
- Notary Registration Type
- If you have chosen Online Notary Center, select the option “Remote / Online + Electronic In Person”.
