ZeroBounce - Overview

ZeroBounce is a US-based renowned email verification service that is also one of the fastest-growing companies in the email verification industry (according to INC. 5000).

Their API integration can validate any email addresses to stop unwanted signup and have cleaned email lists. Even they provide a well-managed API dashboard to look over the daily and monthly reports.

Their A.I. technology is beneficial to get the score of your email address that is identified as the catch-all but quite risky to send through A.I. scoring you get a proper idea of whether to send an email on each email address or not. 

ZeroBounce pricing is much higher in contrast to other providers like MyEmailVerifier & Debounce. While the other two verifies 10k emails in less than $30, Z.B. is asking $60 for the same. 

Worried about your data privacy? You don't need to be with Zero Bounce. They are Swiss EU-US privacy shield certified vendors. There are only 2-3 vendors who are having this certificate.

Pros

  • Good Accuracy

    ZeroBounce claims for 99% accuracy, and it actually gave 99% accuracy when we performed its auditing. This is what builds trustworthiness in the eyes of its users. With this, it stands at 2nd position immediately after MyEmailVerifier in terms of accuracy.

  • Highly Secured

    ZeroBounce stands ahead when we talk about users’ data security. It provides military-grade protection along with a data encryption facility at the time of email verification. Apart from that, it also removes your data immediately after 30 days from the email verification process.

  • Scoring Facility

    ZeroBounce uses A.I. to score email addresses from 0 to 10 based on how subscribers interact with your emails. 10 is considered as the best quality rating, while 0 is considered as the lowest quality rating. Based on this scoring, you can quickly know which contacts are good to target and whether they are likely to convert into your final customers or not.

Thus, you as a user can easily upload an email list from any of these 45+ apps and manage your marketing activity from a single platform.

  • Gender & Geo Location Detection

    When we uploaded an email list file of CSV format consisting of the first name column, the ZeroBouce system detected the gender & geo-location easily from that information. This is where ZeroBounce stays ahead of other email verifiers.

  • Quick Turnaround Time

    While auditing ZeroBounce, it took 450 minutes to verify 10K emails. On the other hand, the average industry standard T/A time is 498 minutes for 10K email verification. Thus, we can see that ZeroBounce’s actual T/A time is less t

Cons
