Importing Subscribers

Noptin allows you to import email subscribers from another system into Noptin.

To do this, you will first need to download the CSV file containing your email subscribers. You can contact the developers of your newsletter system for instructions on how to download/export the email subscribers into a CSV file or spreadsheet.

NOTE: If your system exports XML or JSON files instead of CSV, you can use the XML to CSV converter or JSON to CSV converter to convert your files to CSV.

Once you have the CSV file, click on Noptin > Email Subscribers to open the email subscribers’ management page…

That’s all.

Noptin will import the subscribers in the background and then add them to your newsletter.

Things to Note

Each column in your CSV file should have a header. Noptin uses these headers to map your CSV’s fields to Noptin subscriber fields.

While Noptin tries its best to map the CSV headers to subscriber fields, sometimes it might fail due to the many newsletter systems that exist. It’s hard to test all their export files against Noptin. You can help Noptin recognize your fields by using the following headers:-

  • First Name – For the column containing the subscribers’ first names.
  • Last Name – For the column containing the subscribers’ last names.
  • Full Name – For the column containing the subscribers’ full names.
  • Email Address – For the column containing the subscribers’ email address.
  • Status – For the column containing the subscribers’ subscription status.
  • Confirmed – For the column containing the subscribers’ “double opt-in” status.
  • Subscription Date – For the column containing the subscribers’ subscription date.
  • Confirm Key – For the column containing the subscribers’ unique confirmation key.
  • Conversion Page – For the column containing the pages where the subscribers subscribed via.
  • IP Address – For the column containing the subscribers’ IP addresses.

The email address column is required. The import tool skips all subscribers who do not have an email address. All the other columns are optional.

Any other field not listed above, e.g Phone number, will be saved as is and will be available for use in merge tags.

Conclusion

Even though the import tool has been tested on export files from several newsletter plugins, there are just way too many newsletter systems for us to test all of them. If it does not work on your export file, please rename the file’s headers as shown in the previous section and try again.
