ContactOut Integration


ContactOut helps you find emails and phone numbers for 300M professionals.

The Store Leads database does not include any personal information, so customers often use other data vendors to find contact information for the stores in our database. The ContactOut integration makes it easier to access ContactOut contact data when using Store Leads.

  1. To enable the ContactOut integration, visit the Integrations page in the Dashboard and click on "ContactOut".
