No, nothing. Ever. They get an email notifying them of the signature request and all they need to do is open the document and sign. There is nothing they need to pay or special training they need to have. Signing is quick and easy. Once they've signed, both of you automatically receive a copy of the document.
Templates are used for documents that need to be reused and sent out for signature multiple times. When preparing a document for signature, users can choose to save as a template. Creating a template saves the prepared fields to the document making future sends quick and easy. Sending out a template for signature is fast because the fields are already prepared on the document, eliminating the need to start from scratch each time.
Someone who just receives and responds to a signature request isn't considered a sender. They don't need a HelloSign account prior to signing and it doesn't cost them anything to sign a document.
A sender is someone who uploads, signs, and sends documents using HelloSign and/or requests signatures from others using HelloSign.
