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.

Verifalia - Overview

Verifalia is an Italy-based email validation company. They have provided an accuracy of 94% in our current audit survey. They can easily detect all types of emails as other vendors do.

 

Verifalia API integration gives you easy and fast validation of emails in real-time within five seconds before it gets in your database. 

 

Their pricing is higher in comparison to the competitors as it verifies 100K emails at $389 while other vendors like Clearout at $280 and MailBoxValidator at $200. They provide daily 25 email credits low in comparison to QuickEmailVerification as it offers daily 100 credits.

 

No worries concerning privacy and data protection at all! They provide firewall protection to ensure the best layer of security to its customers. 

 

Certainly, Verifalia is a sweet choice for API email validation and ranks average in the email validation services.

Pros

  • Ahead in Free Trials & Credits

    Verifalia always stands ahead when it comes to providing the free email validation service. It lets you validate unlimited emails without signup, but single validation at a time. If you want to verify a bulk email list, sign up and get 25 email verification free of cost daily.

  • Real-Time API

    Verifalia offers a highly secure HTTPS-based RESTful API that keeps invalid or dummy email addresses away from your email database by validating them in real-time.

Cons

  • Costly

    Verifalia is also covered under the list of costlier email verifiers in the industry. It charges $65 for 10K email verification. This is four times more expensive than other vendors such as RemoveBounce, DeBounce, etc.

  • Less Accurate

    Verifalia could return only 94% accuracy at the time of its audit, which should be at least 96% as per the average industry standard. According to us, it falls behind accurately verifying Yahoo and AOL email addresses because we couldn’t find it up to the mark.

  • Poor Turnaround Time

    When we audited Verifalia, it completed 10K email verification in 1250 minutes. On the other hand, good T/A time should be 498 minutes max. Thus, Verifalia can’t be considered as one of the fastest email verifiers in the industry due to high T/A time. We also want to be clear that It offers three different levels of services and its speed also depends on the service you choose.

  • No Integration

    Verifalia doesn’t allow integration with any application. This is one of the biggest drawbacks as it lacks behind in automating the workflow.

  • Weak Customer Support

    Verifalia’s customer support is not so strong as it doesn’t offer live chat and phone support. So, users can only contact their team through email. Its support team takes a minimum of 2 to 3 hours to respond to your query. Moreover, its support time is also fixed, i.e. from 6:00 A.M to 11:59 P.M(CEST) on the weekend and 6:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M(CEST) during working days.
