Yeah, they are a PITA. I just keep opening new accounts. I tried dragging out ordering supplies, thinking that 'something happening every month' might prevent them from 'cancel due to non-use'. Didn't work. Doesn't seem to be any other solution other than opening a new account annually.
If you don't value your time and experience, nobody else will.
Although I have a couple boxes of their supplies finally, I still ask for an envelope at their outlets because it was like pulling teeth to get an account and get supplies. Their envelopes wont fit docs inside (too small) and too cheap to make them a little bigger. I went to their MAIN headquarters looking for supplies twice and was told they couldn't find any envelopes or pouches or labels. Wow!! Slime. Hate using them. Dannotary
I've run into this issue once wa-a-ay in the past. Forget whether it was UPS or FedEx. But what I do is once in a while I send something to my son or daughter using both accounts - no issues since in gettin supplies.
I just pick up more supplies when I drop a package off at a location, which happen to be convenient to me.
Wayne is great to work for. He offers a fair fee and trusts that the Notary will get the job done. No handholding, no reporting. Just sign and drop. Payment is very fast too.

I have had 2 or 3 easy signings from Driscoll Law Firm. They pay fairly and in about 45 days.

Thanks, Jay. I finished one for them about 30 days ago and am right on my usual "reminder" point for payment. They were prompt with doc delivery, clear with their expectations, and offered a fair rate. I hope they call again. KHSTjudi

I did a signing for them in January 2017. They have not paid after promising the "check was mailed" several times. They are no longer responding to emails or answering their phones. I have sent out a demand to pay letter and have reached out to the party that hired them. Will update if and when I get paid. The only info I had found on them prior to taking the assignment was that they were listed as "out of business" on NR, but further investigation showed that information was not correct.
Please tell me that's $60 for a one or two document signing and NOT a loan signing..
These people are the worst. Very low pay, slow pay and high expectations for reporting status over and over again. Never again overquailified1
everything that is posted regarding this Company is true. I have never worked for them before and never again. I knew they were a new Company, but they are cheap. The first time they called and it was for a Lady who lives 7 and 1/2 miles from me. Nothing was mentioned regarding fax backs. This was cancelled after I had accepted it probably within the hour. That was ok, but then the Company called back and I said well I am not busy. Then this Rep said I knew that you do such a good job. Then he proceeds to tell me that I would have to do it for the original fee which he claims that I agreed to do a full Loan package of 160 pages for $75.00, I said I don't think that the amount was what I agreed upon. You never said how many pages this was going to be. I told you how many pages to start with. I said this undercuts every Notary around this area. He said we don't get paid much so you agreed that you would do it for that. I said I don't remember your saying there were faxback either. Now not only are there Faxbacks but you are suppose to get this package to Fed-x or UPS within 4 hours after the signing has taken place. I said well. None of them are open after 6PM and this signing won't start until 5PM. I said I will do this for what you said I agreed upon, but I am marking you off my regular list and putting you at the top of the List of Do Not Work for this Company. I am not sure who the Bank is that is footing the Loan. I am sure they will find something wrong with how this goes down. They must be a bunch of real Dead Beats! So I am not looking to get paid very fast and from now on I will check the company out before I do this again. I thought this Industry got rid of these types of fly by night Companies, apparently this one has gone under the radar.

Did a full loan signing with fax backs on 4/30/16, and had a similar experience. I have not yet been paid, but did get a call about a week ago, asking me to reduce my fee and that they do a lot of work in my area. Ha! I don't fall for that. What irks me is that the fee was agreed upon, and over a month later, they try to negotiate me down. I explained that I do NOT negotiate my fees, and that you get what you pay for. I am now waiting for my check, and after reading the comments below, I am sure I won't get it anytime soon. Wish I had read the comments on this company sooner. After their phone call, I had already made the decision not to take another assignment. Your comments have cemented that decision for me.[xx(] yrodeo11
The caller ID said Signing Stream so I did not expect much. Well, they did not disappoint. It's 10AM tomorrow, "about" 130 pages, will require "about" 20 pages fax back. Our lender approved a fee of $55
I asked "Are you serious?", she said "I don't understand" - I said "Thank You for calling" and pushed the red button.

Same story - different notary. Trying to renegotiate my fee from $75 to $70 because I didn't do fax backs. Had a previous call asking me to reduce my "regular" fee to $70 because they have a lot of business in my area and that I would get more calls - they are sequenced starting with the lowest fee. I told them all new clients happily pay $100 for a standard refinance with no fax backs.

STAY AWAY !! Don't even answer phones, unless you like to be insulted and slapped.
They Dont Pay , Then They deduct ridiculous fees and pay after 90 days. U might as well find work elsewhere. Dont be desperate and get connned.
They call me for a reverse mortgage, and ask for fax backs with $55 for the entire signing. I told the lady , If She is kidding and told her my fee is $150.
Reverse mortgage packages are "YUUGGE". They are so huge, that it is unbelievable. :)
She then back tracked and offered $125. I had told them to have me removed from their website and emails. Now they started calling me.
They just called me to meet someone at the state line, about 30 miles from me or so. Standard refinance, edocs, FULL fax back. $55. Since it was a distance, they offered $10 more. I said "No way", and laughed. She wanted to know my fee. I offered $125, which seems more than reasonable to me. She shrieked, that was really high. Apparently, they can't get anyone to do it, this makes the third day they have been after me to do it. They sent me texts all weekend. Their pay is ridiculously low. [xx(]

[?]WHAT A JOKE!
Someone named Isiah left a voice mail message yesterday and I responded this morning.
When I asked about their fee, I was told they pay ONLY $55! I LITERALLY LAUGHED AT THEM!
I told them their fee was TOO LOW AND INSULTING to any experienced notaries in the area.
The associate told me that they do "negotiate," what a joke!
I've also read some of the reviews about this company.
I'll simply DECLINE their requests.
Signing Stream is a horrible company. Payments from this company run about 60 -90 days in arrears. In addition to their fees being the lowest out there, they take automatic deductions ($5-$15) from your fees when they do eventually pay. They swear that they haven't rec'd my fax-backs when I have the fax log to prove that it went through. I'm not sure if it's worthwhile to take them to court for all the reductions but I think that's what they bank on....that you won't do anything about the fee reductions or non-payment. Then they have the audacity to ask for me to reduce my fees for completed assignments in order to receive a payment of the money they currently owe. Ugh! I am so done with them! It appears that they lost their contract with Cash Call as the only signing they have called with lately are for Loan Depot. I think they got in trouble after the notaries started calling Cash Call about their money. They actually make the notaries sign a contract stating that they will not talk bad about them! That should have been my first clue! I have told them I will NEVER work for them again! ledgar
Still working with john at Signing Wiz and still very satisfied! Thank you John and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
I have been doing signings for John for a couple of months now. The communication is great, the docs are on time, the instructions are clear. My fees have been paid on time and without a single call for their status. Bravo Signing Wiz!!

I have had an open invoice with Signing Wiz, LLC since November 4. They no longer answer my emails or return calls. Aaron O'Leary was very nice to work with, but that doesn't pay my bills! [:(]

I have an outstanding invoice from January and John promised my check would go out last Tuesday, no check as of today. I told him if i didn't have the check by yesterday, I would call the title company involved in the transaction to let them know Signing Wiz does not pay it's notary's. I will never do work for them again. Lala
I have two signings with the "WIZ" one is 50 days out, the other is 26 days out. Their answer to my first request for payment was you should receive a check in the next 5-7 Business days, maybe earlier. Hopefully they will pay both at the same time! Retiredkop
Signing Wiz has joined the list of deadbeat signing companies. I will never work for them again! I have five outstanding invoices from June thru October 2016 and mostly seller side so the fee is low and payment is general quick to the signing company. I will be calling the signing companies today and everyday until I get paid or they are out of business.
I have been waiting to be paid for a closing done in October - John is 75 days late in paying. He is not answering my calls. A lot has changed in the last 5 years. I will be notifying the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office and the Pennsylvania Secretary of State - we need to put this man out of business

I am doing a purchase closing for these guys today. $125...
Thanks I read this.
I am going to make sure I GET PAID AS SOON AS ESCROW SETTLES & FUNDS ARE DISBURSED.
Please read up on my posting on HOW TO GET PAID FAST, especially when doing business with new or shady signing services.
I have also posted ALSO on NotaryCafe.
I do a One Page insert in the loan packet, the contents of which serve as warning and obligation to PAY NOTARY ASAP.. NOT 15 DAY, NOT 30 DAYS, DEFINITELY NOT 45 DAYS.
I Will update once i get paid and how fast I do
Good luck - unless you're named on the CD (NJ being a table funding state) you'll get paid when they decide to pay you - IF they do. Their ratings on other sites are not good - in fact 1 out of 5 stars for the past 6 months. Reviews both here and elsewhere show slow to no pay.
Good luck. More careful vetting of who you work for would be far more advantageous in the long run, IMO. I hope you do get paid.
As for your insert, I won't chew that over again - you know from other boards how I and others feel about that concept.
I finally got paid from them after more than 6 months. I had to contact them through their website and send several copies in the mail. Just thought I'd give you an update.

Narayan, sorry - you are incorrect.
When a notary accepts an assignment through a signing company they become a subcontractor for the signing company. The lender/escrow/title company is not responsible for payment to subcontractors. You can try a mechanics' lien, but the filing fees far exceed any amount due a notary.
Pressuring signing company clients is a good way to find yourself served with a lawsuit by the signing company, as well as have those clients refuse to allow you to close for them through ANY signing company they may contract for services.
Occasional nonpayments, while not right and not fair, are to be expected in any small business. Write them off and move on. KHSTjudi
I have to disagree with you too, Narayan. The only thing I enclose with a signing package is my card, and possibly an invoice if it's going back to the person who hired me. Your terms of payment should be acknowledged in a written email, followed up by your invoice after closing.
Another suggestion for not getting ripped off, is to make sure you have been compensated by a company BEFORE you work for them again. Do not rack up a bunch of bills before you know the quality of a client.
So true Dan! Great list. I would like to add to your list the expense of doing jobs that end up paying you nothing! As many precautions as we take, sometimes, it just happens.
On the other hand, I have had some invaluable experiences helping people that have made my day, and I've even been tipped!
