Digital signatures are a subset of electronic signatures. You are a signature based on a cryptographic technology called PKI (Public Key Infrastructure). These are authenticated signatures based on encryption keys issued by an governing body (either as a digital certificate or as physical tokens) and a reference number to prove the identity of the signatory.  They are highly secure, but are probably more work and costs than most companies want to handle, or would only support certain types of transactions compared to daily commercial contracts.
