Sometimes we’re asked what are the benefits to having an Email Hippo subscription?


Access to Email Hippo’s API - Access to Email Hippo’s RESTful API is only available through a subscription plan. Our API validates 74 data points for each individual email address with unique scoring based around the email address, allowing you to make accurate decisions around the data you receive. The API takes less than a second to return the verification result. Many of customer have used our API in a multitude of different ways including integrating into sign-up forms, CRMs, mobile applications.


Access to use of API and onetime list service, allowing you to pay for both services using the quota from your subscription. - First, a subscription service builds in much-needed flexibility. If a company grows and needs more verification's, it can just pay for the extra that it needs and the job is done. This works in reverse too. Say extra verification's were required for a big project or temp staff, the additional subscriptions can be cut when additional verification's are no longer required.


The ability to upgrade and downgrade your account as you require. - The ability to upgrade or downgrade based on actual use is incredibly powerful and gives companies the flexibility that they need. Importantly, as the cost per user is clearly defined and attributable to the current tax year, there's a clearer control over costs. And, licensing is far easier to manage, rather than having to manage perpetual licenses in-house.


Flexibility stretches beyond simply being able to change the number of licences on-demand, though. Companies also gain flexibility in the type of subscription they have, so users can be upgraded or downgraded flexibly, depending on the packages and features that they need.


Automatic billing through credit card or PayPal - Having a recurring subscription automatically saves you time and effort, instead of every time you log in to your account you have to purchase top up credits just to be able to validate that days email addresses. You will receive regular emails informing you when the payment will be taken and your invoice will be emailed to you automatically upon payment.



Options to pay monthly, quarterly or annually - Giving you the options to choose your billing makes life easier for you. If  you know your happy with your current subscription plan and know your not going to need to change it for a while. You could change your billing to a quarterly or annual payment saving you money in the long run


Lower payment costs than using the one-time option. - pay less for more, our subscription service costs less on a per email basis than regular use of our one-time service.


Automatic quota alerts when 10% and 5% of your quota remaining - Receiving automatic alerts when your quota is running low, gives you the freedom to not have to check your quota on a regular basis, safe in the knowledge you will be alerted when your account is low on quota. Along with the ability to upgrade and downgrade at will you can guarantee you will always have enough quota.  


Quota reset every 30 days - Having your quota reset every 30 days may seem a bit strange but for companies with API integrated into their websites/CRMs (customer relationship management) it's incredibly useful. It means every 30 days the quota will reset to their full subscription plan, Meaning they are able to validate every sign up per month. Stopping bad actors and data entering their CRMs


Continuous Service available when you require it with a 99.9% uptime. - Having a 99.9% uptime means that Email Hippo will always be available when you require it.
