Pros

  • Best in Accuracy

    According to our August 2021 audit report for Clearout, it ranks on the 5th position in LCA’s recommended list of ten most accurate email verifiers. If we compare this data to its previous audit report, it gave 96% accuracy, which has been increased to 97%. So, we must say that it has improved its accuracy factor for sure!

  • Guaranteed Deliverables: That helps the organizations whose bounce rate is higher than 3%. This result should be used in 24hrs from validation to get a 0% bounce rate.

 

  • Email Finder: we are launching email finding service for the users looking to generate quality leads for their business.

 

  • ClearoutPhone: Phone number validation service

 

  • Up To The Mark Turnaround Time

    Clearout could verify 10K email addresses within 300 minutes; however, the average industry standard turnaround time is 498 minutes for 10K emails. Thus, Clearout can be considered as one of the fastest email verification tools in the industry.

  • Customer Support

    Clearout allows you to reach its technical support team through email and live chat support. As per our experience during its auditing, its customer support is interactive, and they typically take 10 to 12 minutes for a live chat response and around 30 minutes for an email response. We must say that we got the complete & detailed solution for the technical queries we asked them.

  • Extreme Data Security

    Clearout doesn’t compromise anything when it comes to users’ data security. It uses the 256-bit SSL protocol for protecting your data. It also binds to its privacy policy with an access control mechanism for processing the data.

  • Free Trials & Credits

    Like other email verifiers, Clearout also offers 100 free credits upon successful signup; and they never expire.

  • Easy to Use REST API

    Clearout provides REST API, which you can integrate into your platform easily for quick and bulk email validation. The good feature of this API is that it can easily be integrated with all programming languages.

Cons

  • Expensive

    Clearout asks $58 for 10K email verification. With that, it covers under the most expensive email verifiers’ list. No doubt, it provides good accuracy at this cost, but the same or more than this level of accuracy for 10K emails can also be achieved at the lowest cost from other vendors such as MyEmailVerifier, DeBounce, etc.

TowerData - Overview

  • TowerData is designed to help email marketers engage customers behind the email address. Apart, from accurate email validation, TowerData also offers services like Email intelligence and Email append. TowerData will be the preferred choice if you are looking from an Intelligent email verification service.

Pros

  • Quick Verification Process

    TowerData is also one of the fastest tools for email verification as it verifies 10K email addresses in 400 minutes, which is less than the average industry standard turnaround time, i.e. 498 minutes. However, it ranks 11th for its verification speed and can't keep pace with the other ten vendors, such as MyEmailVerifier, QuickEmailVerification, etc.

  • Free Trials & Credits

    Like other vendors, TowerData also allows its users to test its interface and verification capability by providing the first 100 credits for free.

  • Good Integration Facility

    TowerData automates your workflows by letting you integrate with 16 other applications, including MailChimp, ConstantContact, Campaign Monitor, etc. It enables you to bring your data automatically from these platforms and manage your marketing activities under a single roof.

  • Excellent Customer Support

    TowerData opens all doors to get in touch with its support team by providing email and phone support. It also offers live chat support during business hours, i.e. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Moreover, it also lets you set the meeting with its representative, choosing the date and time from its calendar. Thus, we can say that its customer support is outstanding.

Cons

  • Expensive

    TowerData is found as one of the expensive email verification tools among 35+ others audited by LCA. It will cost you $100 for 10K email verification. It is around six times costlier than other email verification tools such as RemoveBounce and DeBounce, whose price is just $15 for 10K email verification. As per the latest audit report of TowerData, it ranks in the 28th position in the race of most affordable email verifiers.

  • Less Accurate

    We at LCA found that TowerData falls behind on its accuracy. We achieved only 93% accuracy during its audit, which must be at least 96% as per the average industry standards. Moreover, it also fails to detect catch-all email addresses. Thus, TowerData ranks 13 for its accuracy among the other email verifiers audited by us.
