1. Too Pricey

As compared to most other e-Signatures platforms, Adobe digital signature can be expensive. The individual plan which is the cheapest is $9.99 per month paid annually at $119.88. for the same features, the price can be as low as half of this on any other platform.

2. Consistent Technical Issues

While most other platforms can be accused of having technical issues, Adobe's are a lot more prevalent and numerous. One of the most problematic ones is that some documents could not be saved after signing. This can be especially problematic for signers who aren't the owners or originators of the documents.

Adobe does have an extensive knowledgebase that has tried to answer all questions that a user may have. But sometimes the articles fail to cover all issues and the Live chat support can be non-existent. Reaching the customer support via email is also quite difficult and there is no phone support, at least not for individual account holders.
