In the states that allow remote notarizations, most of the time they will be completed via a web cam session. The notary will initiate the web cam by utilizing any number of tools, as DocVerify allows the notary complete flexibility to use the techologies they are most comfortable with. Once the web cam session starts, the notary will verify the identity of all the signers using various identity proofing methods, and then the signers will each sign the documents from their own locations which can be thousands of miles away.
DocVerify doesn't charge a premium for this service other than a small fee for the identity proofing if the notary chooses to use it. This not only makes it affordable to the signers, but also allows the notary to make money from each transaction for the duties perfomed.
