Qualified Signature

The Qualified Signature (QES) offers the highest level of security for your signatures. It requires identity verification through ID documents and video liveness checks. After identity verification, signers can save their identity on their mobile device. They can then use it for faster signing in the future.

To create a Signature Request with QES level, first make sure the add-on is activated for your account. Then initiate a new Signature Request with the qualified_electronic_signature level:

    "name": "The name of your Signature Request",
    "delivery_mode": "email",
    "timezone": "Europe/Paris",
    "documents": [
    "ordered_signers": true,
    "signers": [
            "info": {
                "first_name": "John",
                "last_name": "Doe",
                "email": "[email protected]",
                "phone_number": "+33600000000",
                "locale": "fr"
            "signature_level": "qualified_electronic_signature"
