With our Linkedin API, you can crawl Profiles at one cent per profile, at scale.

Since we introduced Proxycurl, the feedback has revolved around two issues:

  1. It is too hard to crawl LinkedIn
  2. And that our corporate plans are too expensive

I am happy to share that we have completely overhauled Proxycurl so that you can

  1. Crawl Linkedin profiles with just 8 lines of code
  2. Get started a free trial with an API Key immediately
  3. Get 1000 credits for $10

Let's dive into the major changes.

Proxycurl's Linkedin API

We had many feedback requesting for an easy way to crawl Linkedin. Now you can.

With Proxycurl's LinkedIn API, you can get a LinkedIn Profile fully parsed into a nicely formated JSON result. All you have to do is to submit a request to our API with the Linkedin Profile API.

This is how the request looks like:

import requests

api_endpoint = 'https://nubela.co/proxycurl/api/linkedin'
linkedin_profile_url = 'https://www.linkedin.com/in/williamhgates'
api_key = '8cf39796-04dc-4c04-9e76-90e9be6a82a6'
header_dic = {'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + api_key}

response = requests.get(api_endpoint,
                        params={'url': linkedin_profile_url},
                        headers=header_dic)

And a nicely formatted JSON data of Bill Gate's Linkedin Profile is returned:

API Credits with volume discounts

Instead of charging $1250 for the smallest plan, we changed the minimum amount to get started to $10.

Instead of rate limits, we changed the way we charged to be based on credits available with no rate limits.

Instead of Enterprise accounts, we will offer automatic volume discounts by reducing the credit cost of requests by as much as 50%. And you are only charged when the request is successful.


How about that? Let's get started then!
