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.

TowerData - Overview

  • TowerData is designed to help email marketers engage customers behind the email address. Apart, from accurate email validation, TowerData also offers services like Email intelligence and Email append. TowerData will be the preferred choice if you are looking from an Intelligent email verification service.

Pros

  • Quick Verification Process

    TowerData is also one of the fastest tools for email verification as it verifies 10K email addresses in 400 minutes, which is less than the average industry standard turnaround time, i.e. 498 minutes. However, it ranks 11th for its verification speed and can't keep pace with the other ten vendors, such as MyEmailVerifier, QuickEmailVerification, etc.

  • Free Trials & Credits

    Like other vendors, TowerData also allows its users to test its interface and verification capability by providing the first 100 credits for free.

  • Good Integration Facility

    TowerData automates your workflows by letting you integrate with 16 other applications, including MailChimp, ConstantContact, Campaign Monitor, etc. It enables you to bring your data automatically from these platforms and manage your marketing activities under a single roof.

  • Excellent Customer Support

    TowerData opens all doors to get in touch with its support team by providing email and phone support. It also offers live chat support during business hours, i.e. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Moreover, it also lets you set the meeting with its representative, choosing the date and time from its calendar. Thus, we can say that its customer support is outstanding.

Cons

  • Expensive

    TowerData is found as one of the expensive email verification tools among 35+ others audited by LCA. It will cost you $100 for 10K email verification. It is around six times costlier than other email verification tools such as RemoveBounce and DeBounce, whose price is just $15 for 10K email verification. As per the latest audit report of TowerData, it ranks in the 28th position in the race of most affordable email verifiers.

  • Less Accurate

    We at LCA found that TowerData falls behind on its accuracy. We achieved only 93% accuracy during its audit, which must be at least 96% as per the average industry standards. Moreover, it also fails to detect catch-all email addresses. Thus, TowerData ranks 13 for its accuracy among the other email verifiers audited by us.
