Elimination of Deposit Account Replenishment by Credit Card

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) announced that CIPO has been looking for ways to reduce the merchant fees associated with the acceptance of credit cards. To help achieve this goal, CIPO will be eliminating the option to replenish a deposit account by credit card as of April 1, 2013.

After April 1, deposit account replenishment can be completed by using one of the following payment options: on-line banking, wire transfer, cheque, money order, debit card or cash (in person at Headquarters only).

Credit card payments will continue to be accepted for individual services when payment is made electronically, or when made in person, by facsimile or by mail using the CIPO Fee Payment Form.
