You don't have to have a share certificate. I print off a copy of my broker dealing account statement, black out the bits I don't want them to see, then email them to the shareholder email address.
A couple of days later I got an email confirming that the OBC has been applied then a few days later, a revised 'invoice' from my TA arrived.
