How to upload the contact list?

Mailercloud allows you to upload the contact list right after filling in the details. There are three methods to add the contacts:





  • By uploading any CSV, XLS or XLSX file, containing all the required contacts directly.

  • By simply copy-pasting the contacts from the available document.

  • By adding individual contacts one-by-one, filling all the contact details. For adding individuals, contact details like the first name, surname, place and country should be filled in. You can also add details like zip/postcode. You could also add other relevant minor details.

Why should I map my contacts?

Mailercloud advises you to Map the columns in your file to the contact properties to match the contact details with the attribute they belong to. If the row indicates a contact’s first name, set the matching attribute as First name.
