ASAP PRO Notary Service and Snapdocs After being retired from the mortgage industry since 2008 he started in 2017 to work as a Notary again. Someone I recommend a company called Snapdocs which is a kind of agency of notaries. They sent me a job on February 9 referred by ASAP PRO Notary services that resides in TX and until today I have not been able to charge my commission I am putting a claim with the Professional And Business Department of Texas? Anyone know anything about this company? 
Snapdocs is a platform, not a signing service. ASAP Pro Notary is a Signing Service that uses Snapdocs to find a notary for their job, and, if you look at the reviews on this site as well as NotaryRotary.com, you'll see that they have a reputation for very slow to actually not paying the notary. I stopped working for them years ago because the last job I did for them took almost 4 months to get paid. If you're contacting Snapdocs for payment, you won't get anywhere. ASAP Pro Notary is the company that hired you and should pay you.  Doris_CO

Signing Wiz, LLC I have done several closing for Signing Wiz, LLC in Washington, PA. John Kulik is great to work with and is always available if you have a question. Pay is good and on time. 
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! [:(] Monica Johnston  103707
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.   Phyllis John
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 Ray Cox  Abbondanza
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 ########## UPDATE on 4/26/2017 ############ I have NOT BEEN PAID As of the date above. Found out who the escrow agent,loan officer and shot off an email to all parties involved. SigningWhiz LLC will be put out of business from this title company atleast.   Notary_Narayan
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. Linda http://www.columbiacountynotary.webs.com  LindaH
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.

Do you notice how all the raves are from years past. Lure you in with a couple they pay fast. Then feeling good about them they give you several and then make you wait for all to pay, if a at all. It's amazing these guys are still in business. I have started making calls to the lenders who use them asking who to send the invoices to because these guys don't pay. I have even referred them to other signing services. You and I probably won't get our money but hopefully the lenders will get the message and step away form them. DON"T BE FOOLED BY THE NICE GUYS ROUTINE. They are not in your best interest. Barry Glassgold  bgmarket
waiting over 100 days for payment John is dishonest - see his ratings on noataryrotary.com etc. Do not accept signings from him!  jcorey

Really not clear on what you are saying or asking here, but just so you know, SnapDocs is just a platform that charges hiring party on a per transaction basis. In other words, yet another middleman with whom to share the fee.
If you don't value your time and experience, nobody else will.

Signing Wiz Completed a closing for Signing Wiz, LLC and John Kulik on 12-15-2008. It is now 75 days past due. After a threat to post negative feedback on the forums, he said "Check will be mailed this week." 10 days later, still nothing. BEWARE! 
I did finally receive my check, about a week after first posting on here. Threats--followed by real action--DO work! :~)  Daniel Woodman
Thanks, Daniel. I am already in the process of lowering the boom on him. We don't need companies like this in our business. I will start soon with Title comapny , then the BBB . I have already posted it on the NNA website. Check it out if you're a member. Go to NNA , then NSA section, then member directory for posting. Aslo check out Notarydontpay.com  renardo452
I've done four jobs for John Kulik and have not had a problem. He's always been there to call me when I needed info on a signing. My first check was a couple days late but he called to apologise for that and called again when the check was mailed. His fees have been competative. I've always been treated well by him.[:D] Susan K Themann  n/a
I handled a signing yesterday for John Kulik. I requested my payment yesterday afternoon through paypal and the payment was in my account that evening. He was very personable and easy to work with.   lightk
Glad to hear about prompt payment. However, I do have a problem with receiving payments for services through my PayPal account. Actually, there are two issues: (1) the may be a fee associated with the payment and (2) no paper trail (check stub). Depending on how the money is sent and whether or not you have a personal or business account, there may be a 2.9% plus 30ยข fee to receive your money. For a $100.00 assignment, that means that you possibly could net only $96.80 after the $3.20 transaction fee is applied. The second issue, for me, is the paper trail. For every assignment, there is a stack of paper that results. (Does not include the loan documents, only those documents that pertain to the assignment: confirmation email, any correspondence, completion report and invoice.) When payment is received by check, a copy of the check is made and attached to the stack. Likewise, if there is a check stub, which there usually is (or should be) with commercial accounting, it too gets attached.
Never drive any faster than your guardian angel can fly. I am not an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Florida, and I may not give legal advice or accept fees for legal advice. Visit us online at http://www.PAWnotary.com  PWinFL
I have used Paypal occasionally when dealing with a new or poor-feedback company, and to me, $3 is well-worth the hassle you avoid by immediate payment! --No 30-90 day wait, no invoicing, no follow-up phone calls, no hold time, no re-invoicing, no e-mailing to get payment, etc, etc, etc. I guarantee between time and effort in collections I spend more than $3 for an average closing with this type of company. Also, I'm not sure how printing out a Paypal transaction receipt is any different than a check stub for recording purposes! Especially since, as we all know, only about 50% of signing companies include one with the check anyways.  Daniel Woodman
LightK , did you request payment up front? I'm curious that someone would pay before job completion!!  renardo452
By the way, I did contact the title company because he shorted my payment and said it was because I did a bad job. this was his reply after my 4 attempts for payment. Anyway, the title company made him send my balance that day and also appointed me so now i do closing with them directly!!! So, i guess in the end it turned out okay. Now if I could get Fox Signing to pay , that would be good. Closed in February and never received payment after many emails, calls and threats!!  renardo452
I think John is going out of business. Closed over two months ago. Haven't been paid. Called to inquire, as he was always prompt. All I get is his voice mail. Ray Cox  Abbondanza
Considering he hired me in Feb. of this year I'm not sure if he gone or just a unethical person. Barry Glassgold  bgmarket

First American Title Just Horrible What is wrong with such a big company as FASS that they have the absolute worst mobile app out of all of the signing companies probably in the world. They bother you with an em that an order is coming..who cares? Just send the order text!! I'm driving or at a closing and I have to see what their em is..waste of time AND what is worse all of the CLICKS YOU HAVE TO DO in order to get into their website and you have to pinch open their app in order to read the darn thing! Then you get this Gargantua of a text with oodles of disclaimers..Why bother my eyes with this?? Then you have to log in AGAIN and read this l - o -n- g text with all of these "conditions" to get to the end if you accept or decline THEN you have to say Why you decline? Give me a break!! They are NOT the only company I work with and they are just totally inconsiderate of what we do out there on the road or trying to close loans to have to answer at their beacon call. Of course I work for others and boy do I appreciate them much more than FASS!! They ought to take a lesson in 2017 technology and update their services to the notaries. [:(!][xx(][xx(]

Notarize 24-7 Any info on Notarize 24-7?  
Anyone getting business from this company?   notaree26
I was last year, before they started requiring background checks. I sent them my background check and they still have not responded.   notaree26
They get your info from Notary Cafe and contact you by phone. I did about 6 signings for them last year. They require faxbacks and charge a little low for everything. They paid right at 60 days each time. Monica Johnston  103707

The Notary Pool Has anybody done work for them? Looks like they are out of CA. Jennifer Cotsmire Notary Signing Agent 
I just did my first signing with this company. I've uploaded my invoice to SnapDocs, which shares with the lender and title. It seemed to work before with another company that was slow, so hopefully this will expedite payment. Cheryl M Sievers  wac283
I just received payment for 2 jobs done, 1 in February 2106 and the other in March 2016. 90-120 days for payment is not acceptable! Wish I had checked here before accepting their work. Vicki Kluever NNA Certified Notary Signing Agent in Alaska 907) 539-7111  AKnotary

I have not been paid either. I emailed, called, put message on their accounting website and no response. They still text me to do more business and I write back that I have not yet been paid so "no". Seems like a common scenerio here. [V] M. Larsen  marilynlee1
This is a worst company , and they use a 45 day credit model to pay already discounted notary fees. I dont know how long they can keep up this ponzi model. I would advise other notaries to NOT accept, and if they accepted, then send the package with a COD delivery, instead of the fedex prepaid mailer. They pay FEDEX to get the payment for this package? Simple as that.   Notary_Narayan
Still have not received payment from them for work done in August turning i over to my attorney today. Dawn Steinhurst  pslnotary
I did a job for the Notary Pool on 8/22 and still have not been paid. We're now over 100 days out. The assignment was a decent distance away, and the file did not close. The borrower spoke with his LO for about 30 minutes before coming to that conclusion. All told, it was about an hour and a half of my time. I was told by Fabrian that the Notary Pool would pay a trip fee of $35.00. The Snapdocs order was updated to this amount after my conversation with him. About an hour later the order was cancelled on Snapdocs. I immediately called Fabrian and asked why it was cancelled. I was told that they did not want to pay the listing fee for an order that did not close, but that it would not impact my payment. So far I have emailed (gotten the canned response), and called several times. Every time I get forwarded to a voicemail box, or simply told that the message was being forwarded to John. I'm guessing I will have to end up eating this time and minuscule fee, but I'll be sure to call Title and let them know. I should have thought twice after I did a job for the Notary Pool on 4/25 and did not receive payment until 7/6 after the same runaround. Unless you want to have to put extensive effort into chasing down low fees, I highly recommend you avoid this company like the plague.  BluffCityNotaries
I did a closing for The Notary Pool back in October, still not paid. I spoke with Jackie Hanson in accounting. She said she just took over the accounting dept and that it was left in such a mess and that she is trying to sort through all the outstanding payments due and to be patient with her and that she has every intention of paying me. That was 3 weeks ago and nothing yet. Yesterday I sent an email asking for an ETA on payment with no reply back...we shall see. I won't do anymore closings for them! Kimberly J Brennan  102740
DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY... unless you like working for free and being lied to by the owners. they owe me $400 for signings I performed for them going back 9 months- I know my fault for letting it get so far. John Hoyt is the owner and his personal cell is 949-933-8605. everyone needs to call him and demand payment. my next step is to contact the FTC and AG in California to report them .   cndyhny
You know there is a problem with a company when they have an answering service. I have been trying to get paid on two orders that were done back in July 2016. Not much luck getting replies. Michael W. Charles  26351
I leave financial industry in 2008 and now I am returning. I see a lot of problem with payments to the Closer Agents. but. Why nobody put to this signing service companies claims with DBPR (Department of Business professional Relations ) of the state of the company or The Federal Trade Comission? The name in every state is different but the Dpt exist. Let me to know about.May be I not know all the issue. Rafael N Varona  rafa2910
