A new function for eServices - "My Cart"
Since the launch of eServices, we have been developing new features and improvements. From 5 May 2013 a new feature called "My Cart" will be made available to all eServices users. "My Cart" enables you to submit and pay for multiple eServices within the one session.
For more information see the screen shots of the eServices "My Cart" functionality.

New transactions through eServices
At IP Australia, we want Australians to be able to derive maximum value from the IP system in an easily accessible and cost effective manner. To achieve this we are committed to continually improving our business systems to meet our customer requirements and expectations.
Our customers have told us that they want to be able to conduct transactions with us online and at their convenience. They also want a secure and consistent customer experience when they interact with us. In response to our customers we released an electronic transaction portal called eServices in May this year.
We are pleased to announce that we have just released the following transactions into the eServices portal:
- Patent applications (including examination requests, postponement of acceptance and selected amendment types)
- National Phase Entry requests
- Trade mark applications
- TM Headstart (including Part 1, Amendments and Part 2)
- Design applications (including requests for registration, examination and publication)
- Plant Breeder's Rights Applications (Part 1)
- Multi-year patent renewals
- Patent examination requests
The eServices portal caters for both IP professionals and self filers. eServices allows users to register, login and submit transactions online and offers users a consistent experience across the four IP rights. eServices has upfront fee calculation and error detection, and payment is made at submission using a Visa or MasterCard. The portal also allows users to save requests, access eServices transaction history and update selected user details.
Start using eServices
Note: If you have already started a Trade Mark application through our old Online Services, you will need to start again in eServices.
When applying for a Design application through eServices the number of copies of Representations for Design applications is now only one, and not the five copies as stipulated under Paras 4.04 (1) (f) and 4.05 (1) (f) of the Designs Regulations 2004.
