  3. Import CSV File: This feature allows you to import a list you have saved in CSV format.

    • Before importing, make sure the encoding of the file is UTF-8. That's an indication of how special characters - basically anything but the 26 letters of the English alphabet and the digits 0-9 are stored. If it's not UTF-8, then it's probably going to get rejected by Simplero, and you'll need to change the encoding before uploading. Here's an online tool that can help you detect encoding and convert it to UTF-8.

    • Select Contacts from your Simplero Dashboard

    • Select Lists from the dropdown menu

    • Select the list you want to edit

    • Select the  Add subscribers tab

    • Select the Import from CSV file tab

    • Click the blue Upload file button to import your subscribers

*Note that if your file downloaded as a zip file you will need to open the zip file and save the CSV file before importing
