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.

SendPulse - Overview

Sendpuls offers accurate email verification results. They have the experienced support team to help you. Their verification ensures that your email list don't content invalid email addresses.

Pros

  • Integration Facility

    SendPulse allows its users to integrate his/her SendPulse account with 16 other applications, including Shopify, Salesforce, Typeform, Hubspot, WooCommerce, etc. This will make it easy to manage your marketing activities from a single platform and upload email lists directly from these apps.

  • Sound Customer Support

    SendPulse stands ahead while providing email and live chat support. Though it doesn’t offer phone support, live chat support resolves users’ technical queries instantly.

  • Free Credits

    Like ZeroBounce, SendPulse also lets you verify 100 emails free of cost every month. If you want to verify more than 100 email addresses, then only you will have to purchase credits based on your requirement and their pricing plans.

  • Powerful API

    SendPulse offers an easy to integrate REST API to let you integrate its services and features to your website, landing page, or mobile applications. This will benefit you to maintain your email list hygiene before it turns messy.

Cons

  • Costly

    Due to the higher charges, i.e. $60 for 10K email verification, SendPulse stands at the 20th position in the list of affordable email verifiers recommended by LCA. We can say that SendPulse is four times more expensive than the other vendors, such as RemoveBounce and DeBounce. If you are a startup or a small business unit, SendPulse might be the costliest choice for you.

  • Less Accurate

    When it comes to measuring accuracy, SendPulse stands behind the twenty-one other vendors audited by LCA! During its auditing, we found it only 75% accurate. On the other hand, 96% accuracy is said as the standard one. With this, SendPulse gets 22nd rank for its accuracy in the list of 35+ other email verifiers.

  • Poor Turnaround Time

    SendPulse also lags when we talk about its turnaround time. It takes around 850 minutes to verify 10K email addresses. In contrast, the average industry standard is 498 minutes for 10K email verification. As it is not as fast as other vendors, SendPulse can’t be covered under LCA’s recommended ten fastest email verifiers of the industry. But it ranks 20th for its speed. From this, we can say that SendPulse is slower than 19 other email verifiers audited by our team.
