Pros

  • Affordable Rates

    Bouncer is a part of LCA’s recommended top five most affordable email verifiers. Want to know why? Bouncer charges only $20 for 10K email address verification. It is far more affordable than the other vendors such as Clearout, TowerData, BriteVerify, etc. However, its charges are less; it doesn’t compromise its accuracy. It offers the best accuracy level at very reasonable rates.

  • Good Accuracy

    We found Bouncer with great accuracy, i.e. 96%, during its audit. With this, it gets 7th rank in LCA’s recommended list of 10 accurate email verifiers. It is very good at detecting emails, including free emails, disposable emails, role-based, catch-all, etc. However, Bouncer itself claims 99.5% accuracy; we get 96% which is also up to the mark.

  • Free Credits

    Like other email verification tools, Bouncer also lets you verify the first 100 emails free of cost upon successful signup. This is how it allows you to try and test its verification ability before you actually buy!

  • Highly Secure

    Bouncer is one of the most secure email verification tools. It offers the top-graded data security to protect the data uploaded by the users and the result which the Bouncer itself generates.

  • Real-Time & Bulk Email Verification API

    Using its real-time and bulk email verification API, you can explore its unlimited possibilities to verify email addresses. This API maintains and improves your email list hygiene as it doesn’t allow invalid email addresses to be part of your email list.

Cons

  • High Turnaround Time

    According to the August 2021 audit report for Bouncer performed by LCA, Bouncer takes around 500 minutes to verify 10K email addresses. But if we check the average industry standard, it should be 498 minutes maximum for 10K email verification. Thus, its actual T/A time is greater than the standard T/A time. With this, it holds 16th rank in the list of fastest email verifiers.

  • Integration with Limited Applications

    It lets its users integrate his/her Bouncer account with only ten marketing and other applications. If you don’t use any of such tools or use one or two out of them, you can't benefit from this integration facility to the maximum extent.

  • Poor Customer Support

    During the auditing process, we found that Bouncer doesn’t provide live chat and phone support to its users. It offers only email support which is also very poor as they don’t reply immediately, but users have to wait around 24 hours for a response from its technical team.

Hunter - Overview

  • Hunter is more of an email finder than an email verification service. Hunter is designed to identify and validate only professional email accounts. However, its email finder is a tool to consider for acquiring quality leads.
  • Hunter only verifies professional emails it will now verify other domains live Gmail and yahoo in bulk.

Pros

  • Fast Email Verification

    Hunter takes almost half of the average industry standard turnaround time, i.e. 498 minutes for 10K email addresses. When we at LCA performed its auditing, it took 250 minutes for 10K email verification. Thus, we can consider Hunter as one of the fastest email verifiers in the industry. However, it doesn’t come under the top 5 fastest vendors; it undoubtedly comes under the list of top 10 fastest vendors recommended by LCA.

Cons

  • Extravagant

    Hunter is one of the most expensive email verifiers in the entire email verification industry. It charges $198 for 10K email address verification. Apart from that, its minimum order value is also high. You will have to purchase a minimum of 1000 credits at $49 per month, and if you choose a yearly plan, it will be $34 for 1000 credits. Thus, Hunter is not a very affordable option for a startup or small scale business owners. It ranks in the 30th position in LCA’s recommended list of cost-effective vendors.

  • Less Accurate

    As per our latest audit performed on Hunter, it was found 88% accurate. If we compare it with the standard accuracy level, i.e. 96%, Hunter’s accuracy is not up to the mark. It acquired 19th rank for its accuracy among 35+ other vendors audited by LCA.

  • Poor Integration Facility

    This email verifier currently allows you to integrate your account with only five applications: Salesforce, HubSpot, Pipedrive, Zoho, and Zapier. If we compare this feature with DeBounce (integration with 100+ apps) and Emailable (integration with 70+ apps), it will be very clear that Hunter lacks in providing integration facility.

  • Few Free Credits

    Hunter offers only 50 free credits to its users during a month. During the audit of 35+ email verifiers, we found that most of the vendors provide a minimum of 100 and a maximum of 1000 credits for free. So, we can say that Hunter lacks behind in giving a total number of free trials and credits.
