Frequently asked questions

What are datacenter proxies?

Datacenter proxies are remote computers with their own IP addresses. They act as an intermediary between you and the target website: instead of connecting to the website directly, your request goes via datacenter proxies to hide any identifying personal information.

DC proxies share subnets which makes them easier to block compared to the more resilient residential proxies. However, since datacenter proxies are running on insanely fast machines, their connection speed and stability are definitely better – and speed can sometimes be the most important factor for your scraping projects.

What are shared proxies?

Shared proxies let you save money and use unlimited IP addresses at the same time. It means that several users might get the same proxy, but we make sure it doesn’t impact your projects’ success. We place no limits on the number of IPs you use, unless you choose the Pay per IP pricing option!

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept payments with Credit Cards, PayPal, Alipay, and cryptocurrencies. With Smart Wallet, two additional payment methods are available (Google Pay and Apple Pay). All orders are processed by our online reseller which is a Merchant of Record for these orders. To contact Paddle’s support team, reach out via

What is Smart Wallet?

Smart Wallet securely stores money and allows you to manage payments with no fuss. You can access your Smart Wallet on the dashboard and use it for any Smartproxy’s product you want to purchase.

The tool works with both one-time payments and recurring subscriptions; in addition, one credit equals one dollar. With Smart Wallet, you can choose between seven payment methods, including the mobile ones: Apple Pay and Google Pay. When you purchase a subscription directly from your bank account, these two payment methods aren’t available.

Payments with Smart Wallet are non-refundable. However, you can get the credits back to your Smart Wallet, and use it for any other product of your choice. Keep in mind that your credits in Smart Wallet expire in 12 months if not being used.

How was the datacenter proxies speed testing done?

Speed was tested using Python requests and time libraries by noting the time before sending a request and after receiving a response. We sent 500 requests per endpoint to the website. After receiving 500 HTTP 200 response codes, we divided the total time by 500 to determine the average response time. We tested speed with both US and European endpoints. Requests were sent from a US VPN server when connecting to US proxies and from Germany’s VPN when connecting to European proxies. The test was conducted using a rotating session type with Python 3.9.6. version. Check the Python code example in our help docs.
