How do I Get Access to the APIs?
  • To use an API you will need a SearchBug Business account. New customer accounts are activated by customer support the same or next business day after verification.
  • Our Standard Identify Phone Number API is based on monthly subscription. To learn more or subscribe, go to Verify Phone Number page. Select Subscription Plan on the left and click "Get It Now" to sign up and receive instructions.
  • All other APIs are paid per use and require a Prepaid Payment Plan.
    • The cost of each API is based on either a Query or a Hit (match) and the cost is deducted from the established Prepaid account balance. Review each API to the left for the associated cost, and, if the charge is per Hit (when information is found) or per Query.
    • Prepaid accounts are automatically recharged when your account is low on funds to avoid service interruption.
    • You can select any prepaid amount from $10 to $1,000. If you are just testing the system, we suggest starting with a $10 prepaid account. Your credit card will only be charged $10 and you can implement testing.
    • When you finish testing, we suggest you increase your prepaid amount to match your anticipated volume to avoid multiple small charges. Multiple small charges to the same vendor can often trigger your credit card company to decline charges which causes your service to be interrupted. We suggest you select a prepaid amount that will cover a least one month of search volume.
    • Note that Prepaid amounts never expire. Should you ever decide to stop using the service, you can simply request the account balance of unused funds be credited back to your card.
    • Once you signed up for a prepaid plan, come back to this page to download the API Documentation
