Overview

Enrichment allows you to leverage Apollo's data to improve the accuracy of your contact and account information. You can use the Apollo Enrichment feature through our REST API. Each use of enrichment costs a credit if Apollo locates a valid email address in the database. Please see the Apollo pricing guide for more information.

 
Saved Records

Please note, Apollo does not save any returned information through the enrichment endpoint within the platform. Returned information is saved to the external source you use to track or maintain data requests from an Apollo REST endpoint.

Refer to the sections below for instructions on how to enrich information through the Apollo REST API.

Enrichment Endpoint

Please note, the Enrichment endpoint can only return one person from the Apollo database at a time.
