In what format do we get RiteKit company Logo API response?
It depends on what format is the original logo on the site. It is either PNG or JPG.

Do you get SVG logos, too?
Yes!

I tried the API, but it’s very slow. I need to wait 1 to 3 seconds to get a result.
The API is almost instant for the logos that we already have in the database. However, if we do not have the logo yet we have to download the homepage of the website and all the images there to determine which one is the logo. This is why it takes several seconds depending on how slow and big their site is. The analysis on our side is very fast after that. This is why we are able to achieve extraordinary success rate in finding the logo. However, unlike other company's company logo APIs, our's will get logos from the slowest of sites, websites with index pages that take 30 seconds or even more to load.

Is it possible to to disable CORS for our domain and all subdomains of it?
Sorry, no. The setting is global for everyone.

I am not even trying to do an external API call, all I'm doing is using a basic HTML tag similar to this one: img src=link_to_ritekit_company_logo. The loading of the logo is incredibly slow, you literally can see the image being rendered and is not very user-friendly.
Actually the IMG src implementation is no longer supported (support ended a few years ago). It would be very easy for other people to steal your API token if you used that. You should actually call the proper API endpoint as described in the documentation.

How often do you update company logos?
We update the logos regularly based on how often they are requested.

We realized that the credit is being consumed even if the call draws blank, i.e. we input a domain that returns no logo.
Yes, you are charged for all calls, including those very few, rare calls which do not return a logo. You will find this to be true with APIs in general.

Is there a way to bulk extract logos from a CSV file so we can fill our database without the need to involve and pay our developers?

We can manually extract the logos for you and provide a zip folder with all the logos at the end. Since this involves manual work on our side, we provide this service only for 200k domains and more. Note that we charge per domain you provide; if the number is high, some may not, in fact actually have a logo. You should test some domains in our demo dashboard to get a fair expectation of what you will get from us. Also, since the bulk extract method involves manual work from us, and delivers far faster than if you use the API, your cost will be far higher.

Using any tier of our API would be far cheaper than bulk extract. Note that we are radically different from Clearbit in that they only provide a logo is they already have it; if we do not have it, we get it.

To get a quote and estimated delivery time for bulk logos: please contact us with the exact number of domains for which you need logos to get a quote, and the email to which to send the invoice. Best is to get started with our API on a paid tier and then, when we have a price for you and an estimated delivery date for bulk extract for the exact number of logos you need, we can bill the credit card you use for our API.

We cannot guarantee that we will provide logos for 100% of the domains you give us. Some domains will have been shut down, others simply have no actual logo.
If you want a quote for bulk domains, please:
confirm that you tested our Company Logo API Demo with a number of domains and are happy with the success rate: https://ritekit.com/api-demo/company-logo
provide the exact number of domains that you need us to attempt to get logos for
provide the email to bill you for the order (if you accept the price and delivery time). Easiest is if you also start with our API on any paid tier (starts at US$49/month) - which most customer do, since even if you do the bulk domain order, you will probably want to continue to get logos for new signups/customers as you get them.

We will reply with a price quote and an estimate on how long it will take before we can deliver all the logos we're able to get. The format will be a zip file.

I was researching ClearBit alternatives / competitors. I am curious to know how many logos your logo API currently supports?
Please see the API Demo Dashboard, where you can test our API solutions without login or API token. Pricing is at the bottom of the dashboard.
The number of logos we have is always growing (and Clearbit is not), and we get logos you query on the fly.. Please see this article for comparing our solution with Clearbit's.

Note that you may use one or more of the API solutions, and your total API calls are added together. The API is not bundled with our consumer SaaS products (RiteTag, RiteForge, RiteBoost, Rite.ly). You would need to register for the API with Twitter or Facebook, but need not pay for any of the consumer products to access the API.
