How to integrate Hunter.io? 

Step 1

Hunter.io API helps you pull leads per domain. The other service that Hunter.io provides is verifying your lead list with its Email Verifier product. Stackby allows you to add both these API services to the same stack. 


Now that you have set up the integration, here is how you can pull in your data:

  • Go to the stack and keep the first column as the base (could be a domain URL or Company Name) 
  • In another column, connect to Hunter.io Domain Search API by choosing Hunter.io Service in API column type and choosing Domain Search API function and then select Domain URL column as the reference column type
  • Add in the domain name of the company you want to prospect, click on the refresh arrow and you will see the data (JSON response). By clicking on the {data}, you can select the data you want to use.
  • Configure new columns accordingly from the JSON data explorer.
  • Just make sure you change the column names and their property from the data explorer and repeat with other columns. 
  • See the magic.
