How do I import a list of subscribers from a file?

In WordFly you can browse to a file (CSV, pipe-delimited, or tab-delimited file) on your desktop and import it into WordFly.


To import a subscriber list file from your desktop into WordFly


Easily import your subscribers from a CSV file by following these steps.


Before starting your import, your file needs to be formatted correctly:

  • If you're on a PC, the CSV format should be saved as "MS-DOS"
  • If you're on a Mac, the CSV format should be saved as "Windows Comma Separated"
  • Your CSV file name should not contain any special characters. Learn more.


1. Go to Subscribers > Lists



2. Select Create an email list.


2. Select Import list from file.


3. Name your file and click Continue.


4. Select your file for import and click I'm done.


Browse to your file. Select the type of file you are importing (CSV, pipe-delimited, or tab-delimited). If you're a MAC user, you should see a message asking you to save the file as a "Windows Comma Separated" file type.
