List Evaluator Public API documentation

Test our email validator

Find out how ZeroBounce delivers better bulk email list verification with 99% accurate results. Upload a CSV or TXT file, and ZeroBounce will evaluate your list for free.

While this is a free public service, there are limitations in place to ensure that once you evaluate the list, you also validate it over ZeroBounce. The List Evaluator public API is available for unlimited use to those who spend credits validating with us.

Using the List Evaluator API endpoint provides results in real time and enables you to get an overview of your email list health before submitting the list via our comprehensive email validation. The results are returned in percentages and a minimum of 100 emails need to be submitted for evaluation.

Here’s how the process works:

  1. Start by sending your email list to the List Evaluator API endpoint (as shown in the above graphic as well as the text below).

    Please replace your_api_key with your API key from your account.

    You can find your ZeroBounce API key by visiting the API settings from your dashboard. You may also create a new API key if necessary. If you’re uncertain about how to interact with our API, please refer to our expanded API documentation.

  2. Once we complete your free list evaluation, we’ll send a response advising you of the percentage of risky emails on your list. If your estimated bounce rate is low, you can end the process there and save your credits for your next cleaning.

  3. If the estimated email bounce rate is high, you can immediately direct your list to the email validator API endpoint for validation.

This improved workflow provides you with more insights about your email list so that you can make more effective use of your email validation credits.

If you need guidance on using the API, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our 24/7 customer support team.
