I problem led to me come up with a new way for people to receive online coupons and gift cards. Can and should I file for a provisional patent for this? Approximately how much should this cost me if I use someone to draft this for me?
The idea is very simple but just a different way for people to get coupons and gift cards. Trying to get feedback, finding a co-founder and possible investors is quite a challenege when you can't really disclose much information and receive some feedback.
Thanks for the help and feedback.
