How long do Snapdocs assignments take to pay?

Filed under: Advertising — admin @ 11:28 pm

I have heard that SnapDocs helps (or sometimes helps or wants to help) their Notaries get paid in a timely manner, but how? How long does it take to get paid from a SnapDocs assignment? Let me know your experiences.



  1. You are paid for an assignment thru SnapDocs in whatever way the hiring party decides. SnapDocs doesn’t get involved UNLESS the hiring party WANTS to use ‘VendorPay’ AND the notary provides bank account info in order to receive the funds via an ACH deposit. And, even then, SnapDocs is only a middleman. INE, IF both parties agree to VendorPay, you’ll get an e-mail saying ‘payment in process’ and it still takes 10 days for funds to show up in your account. If a co. pays you via snailmail check…well, it depends upon their various and assorted idea of ‘when we pay’. Some are good & payment is sent in 2 weeks. Many are not-so-good, so payment can be anywhere from 30 days to never. SnapDocs is a platform that anyone can use and they make their money from company-users and simply do NOT give a hoot whether the notary ever gets paid–not their problem–it’s the Notary’s problem

    Further compounding the horrible concept is the fact that when a notary gets a ‘text offer’, they simply do not have time to do anything rational…just grab it before someone else does (& even then, many complain that it’s already gone–instantly). If the notary ‘got lucky’ and got the job, only THEN can they do their due diligence on deciding whether or not THIS company is ‘good’.
    If it is…all is well. But, if it’s a slow/no pay co. or the ‘undisclosed stips’ of the Order make whatever was offered not profitable, then the Notary has 3 choices: take it at a loss (dumb) OR try to re-negotiate the fee (hiring party can accept or re-assign–so this may or may not work) or simply give it back. Problem with the last 2 choices is hiring party can either cancel (which cancels the order in SD’s system & hiring party must re-enter it) OR simply ‘remove’ the notary and continue to seek another. However, ‘remove’, which works well for hiring party, IS a negative mark to the notary and pushes them down the list for the next search. SnapDocs is no way a level playing field and always favors hiring party’s interests regardless of how bad they are.

  2. Snapdocs is not the payer. The $$ comes from the signing company and it could be one of many vendors.

    Has anyone had a problem getting paid in a timely manner from SigningTRAC?

  3. Hello,

    Typically they pay between 30 to 45 days but this all depends on the company you work for with SNAPDOCS. You do not work for snapdocs but other companies that use their platform.

  4. Average payment experience for me is 40 days. But it depends on the company. It has taken up to 50 to 60 days.

  5. Snapdocs for the most part uses Vendor pay for the majority of the signing services that are on its platform. I do still get the occasional paper check or E-Check but for the most part I’m seeing payments in less than 14 days that center around the 7th and the 21st of the month.
