Last updated: Sep 11, 2021

Overview

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.

Clearalist - Overview

  • Clearalist is one of the fastest and most reliable bulk email verification services best for those who verify a large number of emails at once.

Pros

  • Affordable

    Clearalist charges only $16 for 10K email verification. Thus, it grabs 3rd rank among 35+ other vendors for its cost-effectiveness. If you are looking for a cost-effective email verifier, we must say that Clearalist should be your priority choice immediately after RemoveBounce and DeBounce.

  • Fast Verification Process

    Clearalist takes only 250 minutes to verify 10K email addresses. It’s almost half of the average industry standards, i.e. 498 minutes for 10K email verification. Thus, Clearalist can be considered as one of the fastest email verifiers. According to its latest audit performed by LCA, it has acquired 7th rank among the top 10 fastest email verifiers.

  • Free Credits

    Clearalist also allows its users to test its email verification capability by offering 100 free credits. Because of free trials and credits, users can easily explore the entire platform and know whether its resultant data is satisfactory or not.

  • Quality Customer Support

    Clearalist provides live chat and email support to its users. Live chat support is not 24/7, but it’s only during business hours. During its auditing, we asked them specific technical queries through live chat, and their response was super-fast and accurate. If we talk about its email support, it is good, but users have to wait for 10 to 12 hours to solve their queries.

Cons

  • Low Accuracy

    According to our experience, Clearalist is not as accurate as other vendors such as MyEmailVerifier, ZeroBounce, DeBounce etc. We found only 86% accuracy while performing its auditing. With this, it gets 20th rank, especially for its accuracy level.
