How to Send eSign Contracts

Make sending and signing contracts easier and quicker for you and your growers. Take advantage of the eSign feature of Bushel Mobile app!

“Our paper contracts take a minimum of three days to come back signed. The majority of our eSign contracts are signed in 6 to 12 hours. We have our growers that are notorious for having unsigned contracts only sign their contracts through eSign. This has resolved outstanding contracts by 60-70%.”

“eSign has been our way to engage growers to download our app. After they have it downloaded we find they tend to check out cash bids in our app, giving us the first shot to earn their business.”

When you click send, the contract will be sent to the eSign section of the grower’s mobile app (and the web app, if you have one).  If the grower has notifications enabled, they will receive a notification that they have a contract to be signed.  Even if they don’t have notifications enabled, after three days have gone by and they haven’t signed and submitted the contract, when they open the app, they will see an in-app pop-up message that they have a contract to sign.  This reminder pop-up window will appear two more times when they open the app with each reminder occurring three days after the previous reminder.
