DataValidation's Email Verification FAQ

FAQs on DataValidation Pricing, Email Validation, and the Free Report.

Do I have to sign up with a credit card?

No, you do not need to input a credit card when signing up for DataValidation. You can quickly creat an account and upload an email list for free. You can also signup with an ESP account - like MailChimp. We analyze each email list and provide you a free report on the health of the list.

Do I need to pay before analyzing my data?

No, you do not need to pay before having an email list validated. Upload a .csv list or link an ESP account, have your list analyzed, and view your Free Email Assurance Report before you buy! This is a sampling of your email list that will indicate the overall health of your list. We believe you should always know the health of your list prior to purchasing it. You only pay to access the cleaned email list and Address-by-Address analysis.

How do I know how much my list will cost?

Email lists are priced on a per email basis. You can easily calculate the cost using our pricing page.

Is there a minimum price I have to spend?

Yes, there is a minimum price for check out. If your list is smaller size and does not reach the minimum price, you can purchase the smallest token pack ($3.50 for 500 tokens) and the left over tokens will be in your account to use for future lists.

Are there requirements my list file must have?

There are no requirements on the size of your list; our system can handle lists of any size. Lists imported from a file must be in a .csv format with a single sheet, and all emails should be in the first column with no additional data in this column. You may have additional data fields in other rows in the file, and these will be returned to you in your Address-by-Address analysis.

How long does it take to validate my email list?

The time it takes to validate your list is based on the number of emails you have in the list and how busy our system is at the moment. Generally, it takes only a couple of hours to validate. Some of our users experience turn around times as quickly as 30 minutes for small lists. Depending on your ESP, it may take an hour or more to import all of your lists and to complete the analysis.

How do I use your service?

You can create an account by signing up with an email address or linking an ESP. Upload a file or, link with the ESP. Once they are finished processing, you can view your overall list score and an Free Email Assurance Report for each list. Use this to make an informed purchase decision.

How is my Free Report "always free"?

With DataValidation, you can upload a list at any time and get an Always Free Email Assurance Report. This report is always available for your viewing - no purchase necessary! Upload as many lists as you need to check the deliverability status by using your Always Free Email Assurance Report. It's always free to know.

What kind of information does the Email Assurance Report tell me?

Your Always Free Email Assurance Report is a sampling of your email list that will indicate the overall health of your list. Purchase your list to get an Address-by-Address Analysis containing Deliverability Grades for each email.

Why should I validate with DataValidation?

With our self-service platform, you can easily upload lists of any size and link an ESP account with ease. The validation process is fast, comprehensive, and provides you with an Always Free Email Assurance Report to help you make an informed purchase decision.

DataValidation saved my life! I had to migrate the newsletter campaigns from a self-programmed system to Zoho Campaigns, and I recognized, too late, that the dataset was horrible. Zoho blocked me during the first campaign.

I LOVE your service. I’ve used the MailChimp integration, which works like a dream. I will be recommending your service to all my MailChimp clients as a “good practice” tool to add to their arsenal.

You guys are awesome. I've been looking for a platform like this for 2 months to vet media contacts for my startup so I don't trash our domain in spam traps. This was the most effective tool I've found, and I'll be using it again on the consumer side as we develop a direct email marketing campaign.
— Jared Criscuolo,
Y’all have a great service with a nice clean, user friendly interface. Glad to be able to have multiple versions of our list to make use of. No doubt I’ll be using the services of your company again in the near future.
