How to become an online notary in Texas?

Follow the State requirements for Texas online notary and start online notarizations.


Hold a Notarial Commission

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.

Obtain E&O Insurance

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.

Purchase a Digital Certificate from IdenTrust

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.

We do not accept digital certificates from other vendors.

Purchase an Online Notary Center Notary Plan

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.

Apply to be RON with the SOS

In Texas, you’ll need to submit an application with the Secretary of State before you can officially start notarizing online. You’ll need your seal (which we’ll provide for you), your digital certificate, and the $50 application fee.

For more information, you can visit the Texas Secretary of State website.

What does the online notarization process look like?

The notarization process is completed 100% online through our website’s virtual notary rooms.

With a notary subscription, you’re able to schedule meetings with your clients and generate invitation links for the session. After clicking their links, signers verify their identities using knowledge-based authentication. Then the signer and notary are connected into a virtual room, where they can see the document on the screen and complete the notarization together.

How long am I authorized to be a Texas remote online notary?

Your electronic commission lasts as long as your traditional notary commission does. You will also need to consider the length of your IdenTrust digital certificate, and the length of your subscription with our platform.

What does becoming an online notary do for my business?

By becoming an online notary, you’re helping your business grow beyond your state! You’re no longer limited to just signers in Texas. You can notarize for signers across the US and even outside of the country, as long as you are physically in your state during the notarization.
