Additional Notes:

Tan Aid is a smart and catchy name, particularly suited for a business in trademark class 3, which includes non-medicated skin care preparations, cosmetics, and hair care products. This class thrives on brands that can cleverly connect with consumers through names that are both descriptive and memorable. Tan Aid accomplishes this with a playful yet straightforward approach, making it an excellent choice for a brand in this sector.

The word “Tan” immediately sets the scene. It conjures images of sun-kissed skin and days spent basking in the warmth of the sun. In today’s beauty and skincare market, a tan is often associated with health, vitality, and natural beauty. By including “Tan” in the name, the brand directly speaks to consumers looking for products that either help in achieving a tanned look or care for skin that’s been exposed to the sun. This could cover a range of products, from sunless tanners to after-sun lotions and creams.

“Aid,” on the other hand, introduces a nurturing, caring element to the name. It implies that the products are not just about achieving a certain aesthetic but are also there to support and care for the skin. In the realm of skincare, where health and nourishment are as important as appearance, “Aid” suggests a commitment to skin health. It communicates that the brand’s products are formulated to assist in skin protection and recovery, which is especially crucial for products associated with sun exposure.

Moreover, the combination of “Tan” and “Aid” gives the name a catchy, rhythmic quality, making it easy to remember and brand. In an industry where competition is fierce and shelf space is coveted, a memorable name like Tan Aid can significantly aid in marketing and brand recognition.

Additionally, Tan Aid has a friendly, approachable vibe. It doesn’t sound overly technical or serious; instead, it’s casual and easy-going, much like the consumers who might be using these products. This approachability is vital in building a connection with the target audience, particularly in the beauty and skincare market where trust and relatability are key to customer loyalty.

In summary, Tan Aid is an excellent name choice for a business in trademark class 3. It’s a name that clearly communicates the brand’s focus, suggests care and support for skin health, and does so in a way that’s catchy and approachable. It’s a name that can effectively capture the essence of the brand and resonate with consumers looking for skin care solutions in the realm of tanning and sun protection.

This trademark’s federal protection goes back to 2011 and it has been renewed through December 2032 (nine years from now at the time of writing), meaning that once you buy it, no further action is needed from you to maintain the trademark until the 2030s.

Because it’s a fully registered trademark on the Principal Register, you’ll get instant Amazon Brand Registry access without having to worry about Amazon revoking your Brand Registry access later on because of a refusal by the USPTO.

We accept credit/debit card, PayPal, several regional payment processors, and buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) providers like Affirm, Afterpay, and Klarna, 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.

Yes, you can pay in installments! Just add a trademark to your cart and begin the checkout process. Once you've started the checkout process, you can choose to pay in installments using PayPal, Afterpay, or Klarna. We are not yet able to offer Affirm because Affirm considers Communer a "B2B" business type, which Affirm does not currently support.

Any payment option available to you will be visible on the checkout page when you choose a payment method. If you don't see any of these options, then you or the product might not be eligible.

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.

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 two weeks 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.

The vast majority of our trademark buyers are able to get Amazon Brand Registry without recording their trademark assignment with the USPTO. If for some reason you are unable to get Amazon Brand Registry at first, we recommend recording your trademark assignment with the USPTO, which we will give you details on how to do. The USPTO currently takes two business days to process an assignment recordation, plus about 3-7 calendar days to update the public database.

Yes, once you buy a trademark, you are responsible for filing timely renewals. Make sure to track your trademark renewal deadline(s).

The seller must also choose how they receive their payout, for payment processing fees may apply as well. The most affordable option is to have us send a check by mail for $1. We can also send the payout by bank transfer, PayPal, or Payoneer.
