2023 Year-End Special: 7 Major Upgrades Searchbug Made This Year 

Just like that, 2023 is almost over! But before we say goodbye to this eventful year, we at Searchbug want to take a moment to connect with you. It’s been a year of growth, innovation, and significant enhancements to our platform, and we’re excited to review these updates with you.

As we reflect on the past months, we’re proud of the strides we’ve made to improve our services, and we’re eager to walk you through the changes that have been implemented.

These advancements are about making your experience with us enjoyable, efficient, secure, and user-friendly. Let’s look at what’s new and how these updates will benefit you as we move forward!

7 Major Upgrades Searchbug Implemented in 2023 

1. Simplified SSN and Name Matching 

We understand that asking for full SSN details makes your customers uncomfortable. To address this common issue, we’ve redefined our verification process to make it more user-friendly and secure.

Now, using just the last four digits of your customer’s Social Security number, you can efficiently match it with a full name. This move aims to perform efficient data verification while enhancing safety.

2. New Pricing for Premium People Search 

We’ve refined our pricing model for People Search, aiming for simplicity and affordability for our users. Gone are the days when you must decide between standard and premium instant people search.

Now, we present a single, superior option that embodies the best of our offerings. You can now access our top-tier Premium People Search service for just 195 Search Tokens, which is equivalent to $1.95 only.

3. New API Alert: Property Records API 

If you’re in real estate, property management, or property investment, this API is an ideal tool for obtaining dependable property data. As a special offer, we invite interested customers to request FREE API credits for a trial run.

4. Phone Validator APIs with TCPA Litigator Results 

Our Phone Validator API has been upgraded to include TCPA litigator results to address the growing need for responsible communication practices. This new feature is designed to assist businesses in identifying phone numbers with a history of TCPA litigation.

Why is this important? This added functionality enables businesses to pinpoint numbers involved in TCPA cases. Identifying these numbers is crucial for companies to maintain compliance and avoid potential legal challenges.

While it’s entirely within a consumer’s rights to report unsolicited calls, some individuals may actively pursue such opportunities for monetary reward. By identifying and removing these numbers from contact lists, businesses can safeguard themselves against inadvertent legal entanglements.

5. State DNC Status Checks 

Our phone validation service now includes checks against 13 State-specific Do-Not-Call lists, in addition to the Federal DNC list. This enhancement provides peace of mind, ensuring you’re not contacting individuals who have opted out of such communications.

You don’t have to pay additional fees to access this report. Contact customer service to update API keys.

6. Searchbug Selects Braintree for Payment Processing 

To enhance the security and reliability of transactions, we’ve seamlessly integrated Braintree into our system for payment processing. This change is part of our ongoing effort to provide a robust and secure user experience.

7. More Payment Options 

Recognizing the need for flexibility, we now offer additional payment methods, including PayPal, Venmo, Google Pay, and ACH, alongside traditional credit card options. This expansion caters to the diverse preferences of our customers.
