ShiftCam's MultiLens Camera Cases for iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Now Available

After a successful crowd-funding campaign, ShiftCam has started taking orders for its new multi-lens cases for iPhone 11 and ‌iPhone‌ 11 Pro that augment and enhance the cameras on Apple's latest smartphones using a slide-to-shift frame system on the back of the case.

Read the return policy carefully, if you are thinking about trying this out to see if it's something of use / quality. Notably, anything on sale is not returnable. And just about everything is marked down by $5 or $10. In fact, when I look at applicable products for my 11 Pro Max, 17 of 18 products it filters down to are listed as being discounted (e.g., show a slashed through price).

The full policy is here: (https://shiftcam.com/pages/returns-policy). Key excerpts are below as of 1/6/2020:

"We hope you are pleased and happy with ShiftCam Products at Shiftcam.com. However, if the product itself is defective or damaged on arrival, you can return your purchase within 30 days of delivery for a refund of the full purchase price (shipping costs are not refundable, and if your order with free shipping, we will not refund the postage cost that used for your order’s delivery).

Please note that returns are not allowed for the purpose of getting a future promotional deal, and ONLY regular priced items may be returned and refunded. Unfortunately, all sale items (including any order with discount code applied order) cannot be refunded."


If you have any issues, you may very well be in trouble. Even if you buy something and it's broken upon arrival, does the second paragraph in the excerpt above supersede the first? e.g., if you bought something on sale and it arrives shattered, no refund for you? It certainly sounds like at a minimum, if you were to get a broken product (that wasn't discounted), they are going to charge you back for shipping (both directions) if you exceeded the "free shipping" hurdle at $75 to start. Maybe the right thing to do if you are really curious is disclaim the discount (if they would even let you) and get in writing from them how much outbound shipping is. At least you would know the financial risk you are taking.

So is this a company willing to stand behind its products? I know they are a startup (and capital is probably tight), but there are plenty of others who have do-right, no-gotcha policies.
