Payments and Pricing
We accept all major credit cards, Visa Debit, Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal and Shop Pay, Cheque, and Wire Transfer.
For all orders valued between $2,500 - $4,999.99, Defender requires additional identity verification. A valid government-issued ID and a copy of the credit card (front and back) must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before the order is fulfilled.
Sales taxes on your purchase are calculated based on state regulations for the shipping address you provide in your order. We welcome orders of all kinds, including tax-exempt organizations or individuals. Please contact us before you place your order to ensure we can verify your proof of tax-exempt status for the address where your product(s) are being shipped.
Defender is committed to keeping electronics out of landfills. Environmental Fees help to cover the cost associated with the safe and responsible recycling of end-of-life electronics for both new and certified open box products. Environmental fees are charged based on regular-priced items and not the discounted price. Environmental fees are often administered by State approved recycling programs and are not government taxes, but are mandated by the government.
