The electronic Signature does not need activation. You can use it directly from your Resources>eContracts page as soon as you open a Clustdoc account.
You can use the electronic Signature (unlimited signatures allowed) during your trial and also after you've activated your Clustdoc plan.
The difference between electronic and digital signatures
Digital signatures are seen as an equivalent of notarized signatures and require a confirmation from a third-party (The Certificate).
Most of the time digital and electronic situations are legally binding. You may want to check if your federal legislation has strict requirements related to this.
