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.

DataValidation - Overview

  • DataValidation provides excellent customer support, alongside easy to use dashboard features. However, it ranks lower concerning its incapabilities of validating Yahoo mail accounts.

Pros

  • Free Trials & Credits

    DataValidation offers a total of 500 free credits, which is divided into three parts. You will get the first 100 free credits once you confirm your account, acquire the subsequent 100 free credits by importing your first email list, and the remaining 300 free credits will be allotted after your first purchase. Thus, DataValidation ranks 5th for providing a high number of free trials and credits.

  • Integration Facility

    DataValidation supports integration with eight well-known applications such as MailChimp, MailUp, AWeber, etc. This will assist you in automating your workflows quickly in no time.

  • Outstanding Customer Support

    DataValidation is very good at providing outstanding customer support. Users can contact its customer support team through live chat (24/7), email, or phone support. DataValidation’s support team provides excellent service during its business hours.

  • Real-Time API

    Its real-time API validates the email address at the time of signup to prevent your database from invalid emails. Moreover, it returns a complete breakdown of the quality of each email address you uploaded at the time of bulk email verification.

Cons

  • Costly

    DataValidation is found as one of the expensive email verifiers in the industry. They charge $50 for 10K email verification. It is around three times costlier than RemoveBounce and DeBounce. Here it comes on the 15th position in the list of LCA’s audited 35+ email verifiers.

  • Low Accuracy

    Along with the high price, we were also not satisfied with the accuracy level of DataValidation. We detected 92% accuracy in our audit; however, it must be 96% minimum according to the average industry standard. Moreover, we also found that it can’t verify Yahoo mail accurately. DataValidation couldn’t make its place in the list of LCA’s recommended precise email verifiers due to its less accuracy.

  • Slow Verification Process

    DataValidation also falls behind in processing email verification as it could not generate the resultant data as fast as MyEmailVerifier, RemoveBounce, EmaiMarker, and 13 other vendors audited by LCA. It took 600 minutes to verify 10K email addresses; however, the standard time says it should be 498 minutes maximum.
