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.

Email Inspector - Overview

EmailInspector is a recently established company in the Email verification industry. Though they are not so affordable, they offer excellent phone & email support. We will shortly audit their accuracy data and that will be published over here.

Pros

  • Quick Turnaround Time

    Email Inspector can verify 10K emails within 450 minutes, which is less than the average industry standard, i.e. 498 minutes for 10000 email address verification. However, its T/A time is higher than MyEmailVerifier, QuickEmailVerification, NeverBounce, and many more; it is justified as it takes less than the standard T/A time.

  • Satisfied Customer Support

    Email Inspector offers live chat and phone support to its customers. They take around 3 to 4 minutes to reply to the queries we ask in the live chat.

  • Team Account

    You can create a single Email Inspector account and then add your teammates to it. It would be a cost-savvy option as you don’t need to pay for multiple accounts. It allows you to share one account, credits, and results among different people from different locations.

Cons

  • Expensive

    Email Inspector is more expensive than ten other email verifiers audited by LCA. Its charges are $39 for verifying 10K emails. Moreover, its minimum order value is also very high, $29 for 5K email verification. Due to its high charges, Email Inspector couldn’t make its space among the LCA’s recommended ten most cost-effective email verification software.

  • Less Accurate

    If we talk about Email Inspector’s accuracy, it can’t keep pace with other vendors such as MyEmailVerifier, ZeroBounce, QuickEmailVerification, and 14 others. We found it 88% accurate during its auditing. However, the average industry standard says that accuracy should be 96% minimum. With this, it ranks at 18th position for its accuracy in the list of LCA’s audited 35+ vendors.

  • Limited No. of Integration

    Email Inspector lets you integrate with only ten well-known applications. This is where it lags as compared to DeBounce (providing integration with 100+ apps), Emailable (providing integration with 70+ apps), and many other vendors.
