Become a member

Simply select the membership type that suits you best and fill in the registration form. Please enter valid user details for successful registration. After submitting your form, please activate your account via the link sent to the email provided.

With an IP-Coster account you can generate free quotations, save projects and initiate filings in the countries of your interest. There is NO CHARGE for signing up for an account.

Get quotation

Quotation process consists of 6 easy steps:

Step 1 | Select the IP Type you wish to get a quote for or, alternatively, use a saved project. We offer various IP types for quotation including Patents, Trademarks, Designs, Utility Models, Trademark and Design renewals.

Step 2 | Choose the jurisdictions of your interest. You may choose any country and/or regional organization from the extensive list available in the system. Please note that selection of a regional organization and its member state in the same quotation is not available.

Step 3 | A preferred IP-Coster agent is recommended to you in each jurisdiction by default. Premium Members have the option to choose an agent by selecting one from the drop-down list. To ensure your confidence in the patent agent, we have formed an international network of qualified and reliable agents with a high level of expertise and competency.

Step 4 | Stages are recommended automatically by IP-Coster. You may customize this option and select the specific stages that you wish to be considered before a quote is generated. Payment availability status is displayed below the table of contents to specify whether the chosen stages are payable at the time of quoting, depending on the country’s registration procedure.

Step 5 | Depending on the IP type and the countries selected, you may need to enter application details to receive a precise quotation and benefit from any possible reduction of the official fees (e.g. for a patent application: application number, total number of claims, number of independent claims, number of pages, etc.; for a trademark application: application number, number of classes, number of goods/services in one class, etc.).

Step 6 | The quotation summary is ready for your review. You may also view a detailed report which is available for download in different formats.

You can save your quotation as a new project by clicking “Save project” for future references and return to it at any time without re-entering all of the data. The rates are valid within 24 hours and may be actualized by clicking “Update” at any time.

Place Order

This option is available to registered members only.

Please go to your saved project and click Place order and get invoice on the project page.

If this is your first order with IP-Coster, you may receive the “Place order and get premium membership” option to upgrade your account to Premium. After verification by our administrator, your account will be upgraded and the invoice will be available in the “My projects” tab within next 24 hours.

After you review your order and invoice details, please click “Confirm” to generate an invoice. You may review, download or delete all of your invoices at any time via “Invoices” in the "My projects" tab.

After invoice confirmation, our system sends order details to the assigned agent(s) for reviewing via Messenger and email.

Please complete your order by sending the formal instructions, files and application details to your agent via Messenger.

The agent will review your order and confirm the acceptance thereof within one business day, after which you will receive the corresponding notification and be able to proceed with your payment.

Please create a payment record once the invoice has been settled. You may add, approve and edit your payment records by going to “Payments” in the "My projects" tab.

The invoice status changes to "Paid" when the agent approves your payment record confirming the invoice settlement.  

The agent keeps you updated about any developments in respect of the case and sends the reports (when the application is filed or any other step is fulfilled) via Messenger. All messages and files are stored on your account and may be accessed at any time for your convenience.

When you require an additional action, e.g. examination, grant, recordal of assignment, etc., you may go to the “My projects” tab, select the corresponding project and click “New order” on the project page.

Manage Cases

“IP-Workflow” is a docketing system dedicated to managing your IP assets during their whole lifecycle.

The “Cases” tab provides access to all case data. From the “Cases” tab, it is possible to access Messenger, receive quotations and send instructions to Agents as well as generate invoices for these actions.

The “Schedule” tab enables you to ensure that deadlines are met and tasks are completed on time.  It allows you to keep track of your application process, monitor statuses, deadlines, and make any internal comments.

“Applicants”, “Authors”, “Clients” and “–źgents” are tabs that are used to gather all relevant information and documents in a single personal database.
