Changes to payment options for international trade mark applications

Published: 
22 October 2015

In March 2015, in conjunction with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO), we implemented Madrid eServices allowing customers to submit electronic Madrid Export applications. The original release allowed EFT as an option to pay. However, as EFT payments were not supported for any other eServices payments it was always planned to be removed as part of a future maintenance update.

WIPO will soon be releasing a new version of Madrid eServices. As a result, the option for using EFT payments when filing new electronic Madrid applications will no longer be available.

The change will take effect from Monday 9 November 2015. For further information please contact 1300 651 010 or email InternationalRegistration@ipaustralia.gov.au.
