Verify Mailing List

To send a mailing list for review, send a POST request to: 

https://api.sendpulse.com/verifier-service/send-list-to-verify/

Request parameter:

Parameter Type Description
id int Mailing list ID to be verified required

Request example: 

{
   "id":89165888
}

Please note that you can not run several verifications on the same mailing list at the same time. You have to wait until the first verification ends. You can see the progress of the verification process using the "Get Mailing List Verification Results" method.

If you are sending a mailing list for re-review, new addresses must be added to it. You can only verify a mailing list that has not been used in a campaign. Also pay attention to the expiration date of your current plan and the number of verifications you have available.

If request is successful, you will receive a response:

{
    "result": true
}

To view the verification results, use the "Get Mailing List Verify Result" method.
