Are you a current or aspiring notary public in Missouri seeking more flexibility and freedom (or even a boost in income) in your work life? Today, we’re covering how to become a “RON” in your state. We cover the steps required to become certified and how to select a reliable RON platform so you can start working remotely as quickly as possible.

What is an online notary?

An online notary is certified and equipped to notarize documents over a secure online platform rather than conducting in-person meetings with signees. Remote online notarization (RON) uses audiovisual technology, like video calls, to complete the notarization process remotely. Notaries can verify the signee’s identity and witness a document’s signing online.

This modern approach offers convenience and accessibility, especially when in-person meetings are challenging. Remote online notaries provide more flexibility and efficiency in our fast-paced world.
