We pride ourselves on making your shopping experience as easy as possible while you learn, evaluate, and buy our products. If you have any questions that are not answered here, please contact us and we would be happy to assist you.

Payments and Pricing

Payment Methods

We accept all major credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Shop Pay.


Sales Tax

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.  


Issues with Credit Cards

We’re sorry your experiencing credit card issues, do us a favor by double-checking all the information you provided is correct. If everything seems correct, call your credit card issuer or your payment service’s customer service line for more help.

We do not store credit card information on our website. All payment processing is done through a licenced third party. Refer to our Privacy Policy for more information on compliance.


Billing Addresses and Account Verification

Your billing address must match the address you have on file with your payment provider. This helps reduce the chance of delays or orders not going through. Please contact your credit card company for information on the current address on file in case you are unsure.


Orders, Shipping, and Returns

Shipping Options

Sometimes, you need your products fast. So that’s why we provide our customers with two shipping methods.

Standard Shipping (delivery within 7 business days) – Free on all purchases.

Expedited Shipping (delivery within 1-3 business days) – Additional shipping charges shown at checkout.

Order of $800 USD or More
All orders from Defender are shipped from our Canadian warehouse. When passing over the USA border, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requires an International Revenue Services (IRS) Tax-ID for all orders of $800 USD or more (on subtotal, before taxes and any express shipping charges). We ask that this be included in the Order Notes section when placing your order. If you are not comfortable with this, our team will reach out to you within one business day to receive your Tax-ID over the phone. Defender will be assuming all customs and duty costs associated with your order.

Referral Program

How to Earn Rewards with Defender's Referral Program

Referrers can apply to join the program here. Referrers can earn rewards when a friend clicks on the referral link to redeem their referral code. The referrer can not earn rewards on their own purchase(s). The referral will redeem a reward 30 days after the completion of the referred friend's purchase. A referrer can earn multiple rewards if the referred friend(s) complete one or more purchases of any regular price full security system or IP camera. There is no limit to the maximum number of rewards that can be earned per referrer unless otherwise indicated.


Qualifying Purchases

A qualifying purchase is a purchase of a new and regular priced Defender Security System or IP Camera on DefenderCameras.com. The qualifying purchase must be made before the referrer can receive a reward. Accessories, replacement parts and refurbished items are not be considered a qualifying purchase.


Sharing Referral Links

Referral should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. Referral links should not be published or distributed on commercial websites (such as coupon websites or Reddit).


Termination and Changes

Defender may suspend or terminate the program or a user's ability to participate in it at any time for any reason. We reserve the right to suspend accounts or remove rewards if we notice any activity that we believe is abusive, fraudulent, or in violations of Defender's Terms of Service. We reserve the right to investigate all referral activities and modify referrals in our sole discretion as deemed fair and appropriate. If a referred friend who has completed a purchase chooses to return their monitor within 30 days of purchase, Defender reserves the right to revoke the referrer's reward. The scope, variety, and type of services and rewards that you may obtain by referring purchases can change at any time.
