Can I import my contacts from a CSV file?

One of the different import options Moosend offers to help you upload your email marketing mailing list is using a CSV file containing your new recipients. You can use either .csv or .txt files, of up to 40MB. If your content contains any special characters make sure you upload a UTF-8 file to achieve maximum compatibility.

The import process is easy and straightforward, just follow the steps described below:

A. Find the CSV File import option

1. Click on the Mailing lists button, located on the left side of your Control Panel page.
