How to Manage your International Registration: Payment Methods

Fee payment is an integral part of managing your trademark portfolio through the Madrid System. For transactions that incur costs, the Madrid System offers several convenient ways to pay your fees:

  1. Current Account at WIPO
  2. Credit card (in certain cases)
  3. Bank transfer
  4. Postal transfer (within Europe only)
Warning – Failure to pay your fees in full will result in the issuance of an irregularity notice. The notice will contain a payment deadline (typically 3 months), after which the application will be deemed abandoned.
