As an experienced Certified Notary Signing Agent for more than 15 years, I can tell you some of the fees offered as long ago as 2005 were $85/$95 for a refinance package [more if directly from the Title Co], that was drop shipped to the Notary for signings the next day! The truth is the fee offered by Title Companies is generally $150 and above depending on the TC. If a Signing Service, Title Co. or Lender is using SnapDocs.com, they are being charged a fee between $10-$15/signing to cover the cost of SD's maintenance of the credentials of thousands of Notary Publics around the country. These vendors would otherwise incur enormous costs maintaining their own cadre of Notary Signing Agents while severely limiting their national reach. These 1st, 2nd, or 3rd party vendors, who sit safe and secure in an office, working a phone and a computer, feel justified deducting the SD fee from the $150 fee, which is their "cost of doing business" that is is being subsidized by the Notary. Conversely, the Notary Public absorbs ALL the costs of doing of the business [paper, toner, time prepping, sometimes QC the package when errors are discovered, gas, time traveling, safety concerns, auto wear & tear] from what remains, which is often times less than half!!! Its been necessary to eliminate working with such companies who won't budge from the $60-$75/ signing fees they offer. The down side of this practice is less work. It is also not clear if SD, which allows the Notary to opt out of working with specific vendors, offers the same option to vendors regarding specific Notaries. Food for thought, especially since there is not way to speak to anyone at SD. NNA advises that as we can not unionize since we are self-employed individuals and not employees. We might be able to form an association of independent contractors at a local level, similar to a chamber of commerce, that would offer incite and best practices for newly minted Notary Publics to help curb the further erosion of the fees.
