Import Subscribers

When you create a mailing list for the first time, it's empty - it contains no subscribers. You can of course input the subscribers manually. However, we provide a much quicker way of importing your subscribers from a comma delimited (CSV) file. Here you will learn the steps needed in order to get subscribers into your mailing list.

To import subscribers data into a mailing list:

1. A little preparation is required in order to get your data into the required format in order for it to be imported. The data should be in CSV format, which can be created using a Spreadsheet programme or an editor. The file should contain three columns, each of which should be separated by a comma - Email Address, First Name, and Last Name. Each of the subscriber records should be on their own separate row. In the spreadsheet, simply save the file to CSV format.
