A RON signing that took too long

Filed under: General Stories — admin @ 9:48 am

We had a lady customer who did a RON signing. It took 45 minutes using Pavaso. Most of the time was used using the identification software.

The client found her through a builder that knew her as a Notary, and the customer was a client of the builder in Minnesota.

Another Notary I talked to does online notarizations and has customers around the world in places such as Dubai, Germany, etc. But, she had a lot of technical issues particularly with cameras and her signing took several hours.

Some people who do RON signings who are familiar with the software and don’t have a problem with their computer or the app or platform get RON signings done quickly. But, for people who don’t do it regularly, it is easy to have trouble. My suggestion is don’t become a Remote Online Notary unless you really love technology and not seeing people face to face and intend to take the profession very seriously. It seems to not work out well for those who are just doing it on the side.



  1. How refreshing you said something that actually makes sense and I totally agree with you!

  2. My goal is to be a RON, but first I want to develop my technological skills. I am currently taking classes through MyCC (My Computer Career to expand my knowledge and give back to the notary community. As a Social Worker, I have developed a patience working with individuals with disabilities and seniors who are not tech savvy. I want to bridge that gap by increasing my knowledge and share it with others. My new motto is, bit by bit then watch me grow.
