US Trademark Registration(s) and Domain Name(s). This is a legally registered trademark that will be transferred to you if you buy it on Communer. Domain name is included as well.

|What Happens After Checkout?|
Communer will hold your funds securely until both you and the seller sign a trademark assignment agreement drafted by Communer. You'll be refunded if seller fails to transfer the trademark.
This is a high-value listing. You can use credit card or PayPal, but if you’d prefer to use bank wire, Escrow.com or another method, please email email@example.com.
We accept credit/debit card, PayPal, and certain installment payment providers like Affirm, depending on the trademark's value and your location. For larger purchases (roughly $10,000 or more), we also accept bank transfer if you reach out to us and let us know you'd like to pay that way.
Most of our buyers become the new legal owner of the trademark within three days of paying for it. Shortly after payment is made, Communer generates a trademark assignment agreement for e-signature by both the buyer and seller. When both parties e-sign, the buyer is now the legal owner of the trademark.
As the buyer, you may want to record your assignment with the USPTO. This process does not change the legal owner, but it updates the ownership records in the public trademark database. The assignment recordation process usually takes about one month for the USPTO process, though it can take more like two months if complications arise. Once the assignment recordation process is complete, the USPTO will update the listed owner in its TESS search engine and its TSDR trademark records shortly after.
The buyer can usually file the assignment recordation themselves using the USPTO's Electronic Trademark Assignment System (ETAS) for $40. If you'd prefer to have an attorney to file it on your behalf, our partner firm JPG Legal can file the assignment recordation for $250 including the filing fee for one trademark, plus an additional $50 per trademark for additional trademarks transferred in the same deal. For example, if you bought a name trademark and a logo trademark together and you want to record both assignments, the total cost for record the assignment of both trademarks will be $300 including filing fees.
After you purchase a trademark on Communer, we'll give you next steps on how to have the assignment recorded if you're unsure how to do it on your own.
Does the buyer or seller need to file anything with the trademark office after a trademark purchase?
The seller does not need to file anything.
Most buyers will want to record their trademark assignment with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) after they purchase a trademark on Communer. The assignment recordation process enters the ownership transfer into the public record and updates the trademark's listed owner in the publicly searchable trademark database.
Around half of Communer's buyers are Amazon sellers, so we make the Amazon Brand Registry process as quick and reliable as possible. Our buyers typically gain Amazon Brand Registry access within one week of paying for their trademark.
Once the buyer and seller both e-sign the trademark assignment agreement generated by Communer, the buyer can apply for Amazon Brand Registry using that trademark's registration number. Amazon will send a verification code to the seller, which the seller is then required to forward to the buyer in a timely manner as stated in the assignment agreements we generate.
As long as you apply for Amazon Brand Registry within one week of buying your trademark, the seller will not receive their money until you gain Amazon Brand Registry access. This ensures that the seller will do everything possible to give you access to Amazon Brand Registry as soon as possible.
Communer cannot control the actions of Amazon and thus we cannot guarantee that Amazon will grant the buyer Brand Registry access, but all trademarks we sell should be eligible for Amazon Brand Registry as long as they're not on the Supplemental Register. Very few Communer trademarks are on the Supplemental Register (as of this writing, none are). When trademarks are on the Supplemental Register, we warn you of that in the listing.
