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.

MailFloss - Overview

  • Mailfloss has some exciting features like automatic mailfloss, which scans your connected email service provider for new emails every day. However, on the accuracy front, Mailfloss has a space to improve as its system is not capable of validating Yahoo mail accounts currently.

Pros

  • Freemium model offers 500 free email verification every month.
  • Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, AOL Detection.
  • Integration with well-known email automation tool like mailchimp, hubspot etc.
  • Real-time API for email verifcation.
  • No developers needed and no more cumbersome spreadsheets.

Cons

  • The credit card details are mandatory for signing up.
  • Chat support is not available after business hours.
