Whether you are a novice or an expert, this question is naturally asked when comparing tools or when you must purchase.

Of course, the functionalities are very similar, but the purpose is entirely different.

After reading this article, you'll be able to easily explain the difference between these two types of software to anyone.

Let's go!

What is an email verifier?

An email verifier is a tool that takes care of the large-scale verification of your recipients' addresses.

You upload a file to these tools or send an API request containing emails. The service returns whether the email is valid, invalid, or catch-all.

Why use an email verifier?

These tools, like Neverbounce, Usebouncer, or Debounce, are used by marketing teams to verify their customers' emails before launching a marketing campaign.

Checking your emails is a step that should be addressed in email marketing. Otherwise, you risk high bounce rates and being reported as spam.

How much does it cost?

A verification costs between $0,008 for small volumes and $0,0003 for large volumes.

What is an email finder?

An email finder has the same characteristics as an email verifier except that instead of verifying an email, it has to find the right combination (pattern). Enrow belongs to this category.

You send a file or make an API request that contains these 3 pieces of information, the first name, the last name, and the company website of the contact.

The service will search for your contact's email and return it to you if the email found is valid, invalid, or catch-all.

You can provide only the company name on some tools instead of the URL. But if you wish for accurate results, you should avoid this technique because of twins companies (like Dove the beauty bar and Dove the dark chocolate) and domains with not the correct extension (evian.com instead of evian.es)

Why use an email finder?

The email finder lends itself more to commercial prospecting by email. Often the input file comes from scraping on LinkedIn or a CRM export.

How much does it cost?

On average, a check costs between $0,04 per search for small shots to $0,006 for larger shots.

At Enrow, the small plan costs $0,019 per search for a plan of 1 000 searches to $0,0039 for plans with 100 000 searches per month.

What is the difference between an email verifier and an email finder?

The notable difference is that with an email verifier, you pay for a single combination (or pattern) test. In contrast, an email finder will charge you per contact.

Sometimes the email finder has to search once, and often it can do several hundred checks without the rate changing.

An email verifier is, therefore, your best asset for marketing purposes (newsletter, inbound, white paper, etc.) or email verification during registration, for example, to avoid disposable addresses in a signup flow for an e-commerce or a SaaS.

An email finder lends itself more to commercial topics, such as cold emailing. Still, it can also be used to create personalized audiences for advertising.

Do you need to verify emails after email enrichment?

In principle, you don't need to check an already enriched list; most email finders have already done so.

However, suppose you decide to do so and have used Enrow, for example. In that case, you will have errors on your second verification because we have a catch-all verification system that nobody else has on the market.

Conclusion

The choice between an email finder and an email verifier must be conditioned on the purpose of your actions.

If you already have emails and want to know their validity, use an Email Verifier like Debounce.

You don't have your contact's email, but you have his first name, name, and company; use an Email Finder like Enrow.
