***Important/Action Required***

New WIPO PAY Service

From June 26, payments for all WIPO domain name cases must now be made via the new WIPO PAY facility. This streamlined system allows online payment and viewing of pending financial transactions with WIPO. WIPO PAY is secure and encrypted, and has a number of advantages, including one-click payment (with confirmation by email), the possibility to pay several transactions at once, and a “live” view of all payments across WIPO services.

Action Required Before Use

WIPO PAY requires you to Create a WIPO Account which is a simple process, taking only a couple of minutes, and only has to be done once, ahead of using WIPO PAY for the first time. WIPO Account FAQs.


Once your WIPO Account has been set up, payments can be made via the blue “Pay” button on the Center’s domain name Fees Page. Clicking the “Pay” button will prompt you to authenticate your WIPO Account; you will then be directed to the Center’s payment page, including the payment form to be completed. As before, once the form has been completed and submitted, you will be redirected to the secure payment facility.

Modes of Payment

Payments can be made by credit card, bank transfer, PayPal, or via your WIPO Current Account. (The WIPO Current Account is designed for those carrying out frequent transactions with WIPO. Learn more about the Current Account at WIPO, including how to open one.)

WIPO does not retain sensitive financial payment-related data.
