What Is Email Validation?

Email validation is the process of verifying that an email address exists and is valid. There are a number of ways to do this, but the most common method is to send a test email to the address in question and see if it bounces back.

If the test email is successfully delivered, then the address is considered to be valid. If the email bounces back, then the address is invalid and should be removed from your list.

What Is A Bounce Rate?

The term “bounce rate” is email marketing lingo for the percentage of your emails that don’t make it to their intended destination. There are two types of bounces: hard and soft.

A hard bounce is an email that has been returned to the sender because the address is invalid. This could be because the email address doesn’t exist, the domain name is incorrect, or the mailbox is full.

A soft bounce is an email that gets temporarily rejected by the receiving server. This can happen for a number of reasons, including:

The recipient’s inbox is full

The email is too large to be accepted

The server is down or experiencing technical difficulties

Why Is Email Validation Important?

Email validation is important because it helps you to keep your bounce rate low. A high bounce rate can damage your sender reputation and make it difficult to deliver your emails to the inbox.

Email validation is also important because it helps you to clean up your email list. An outdated or inaccurate email list can cause a lot of problems, including undeliverable emails, bounced emails, and wasted time and resources.

What is Bounceproof for Chrome?

Bounceproof is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to validate your email lists right inside Google Sheets. It’s the simplest and most effective way to verify your email addresses and keep your bounce rate low.

Bounceproof aims to make your life easier by allowing you to validate your email lists right inside Google Sheets. That way, you can export your results to your sending software in an instant. And because it's all inside of Google Sheets, you can say goodbye to dealing with multiple platforms & significantly simplify your workflow.

How Does BounceProof Work?

It's simple! In just a few steps you can validate emails directly in your sheets:

  1. Download BounceProof for Google Chrome
  2. Create your lead list in Google Sheets
  3. Ensure your Sheet is publicly editable (so Bounceproof can edit)
  4. Paste the URL into BounceProof (from the top of your page)
  5. Set your columns & rows – then submit!

Now sit back, grab a coffee & watch the verification process in action. You can switch to the status tab to see real-time updates. Short lists will verify almost instantly, while longer lists could take a minute or two. Bounceproof will add colorful text to your sheet to let you know which emails passed and failed. In the status tab, you could export your passed (or failed) leads into another sheet.

Once complete, you'll have a list of valid & invalid email addresses – as well as any catch-all domains that were found. If you export leads from the status tab, it will add another page in your sheet which you can then export to the email-sending software of your choice to begin your campaigns!

How Much Does BounceProof Cost?

The extension is free to download but emails are verified on a credit system. Currently, 100 credits are $1.99, 500 credits are $6.99, and 1000 credits are $10.99. There will be support for larger credit packages shortly after the beta is over. 1 verification is equal to 1 credit. If a row in a list is empty, no credits will be deducted.
