There would be a button beside this on the right side. Click on “View”.

Just to be clear, you would not be able to download the share certificate for yourself unless the company signs it as well. So, you will have to request for the certification and that is when the company would assign executors to sign the grant. Once this is done, you (the shareholder), would be able to download the certificate.

Step 6: After you click on the request button, it will send the request and the download button will appear. The button would not be accessible as shown below until the company signs the certificate.
