When you put in a name and (or just a) website to get emails you can get many different results.
The basic rule to remember
The basic rule is we ONLY charge a credit for verified results and it does not matter how many results are returned. The rules are slightly different for the API, that's covered further below.
When you enter a single search, which results cost a credit and how many?
1 verified email? 1 credit
3 verified emails? 1 credit
25 verified 'found on web emails? 1 credit
1 unverified pattern guessed email? 0 credits
25 unverified 'found on web' emails? 0 credits
In short, if you enter in a search for jack smith, airbnb.com and Jack has 3 emails and all come back as verified, it's only 1 credit. If you enter in just airbnb.com and we give you 25 verified emails, it's still only one credit. Anything else that comes back as 'unverified' is free. See the types of emails we provide.
We don't charge for duplicates
If you entered in 'john smith, google.com' and then entered in the same query again, you would not be charged another credit. We'd recognise it as a duplicate.
However, if you then enter in 'smith john, google.com' then that is not considered a duplicate query as we'd have to again check against the server to see if it exists rather than pulling it from your records. It's not an identical query.
The good thing is that if you upload the same file twice, all the queries would be the same and you won't get charged for it. Just don't delete previous files!
The API will charge you a credit for both verified and unverified but you have the choice of turning off the unverified within the API call.
