Notary Services as a Side Hustle

For many, having a side hustle certainly has become the norm—whether it be because they want more flexible ways to work or extra income to afford their lifestyle.

One trendy side hustle for many is becoming an online notary, and it’s become even easier to provide these services from the comfort of home.

With the 2016 launch of Notarize, the first notary public platform to allow any person or business to get their documents legally notarized online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, notary transactions are now possible digitally.

Becoming a Notary

Notarize can help anyone interested in becoming a notary to get certified, allowing them to work full or part-time at their own convenience and begin earning extra cash. It also connects them with individuals and businesses needing to get documents notarized.

Currently, 38 states plus the District of Columbia have passed legislation enabling Remote Online Notarization.

Anyone in those states can review the laws and capabilities in their state and learn how to become commissioned as an Online Notary through their Secretary of State website. Notarize currently serves 29 of these states.

As far as equipment, notaries should have a computer with a webcam and a reliable Internet connection. Notaries should also be accurate, follow legal requirements, and consider optional insurance.

It can take up to 6 weeks to become an online Notary. Up to 4 of those weeks will be spent on the first step of becoming a traditional Notary. The rest of the process can be done quickly.
