How to Import Contacts by Pasting

You may want to import a large amount of contacts but they may not be in a CSV file. Importing contacts by pasting is great for people who have a database of contacts stored in a word document or a notepad file etc.

The first thing you need to do is make sure that all the email addresses are on their own line in your document.

The next screen will then have the option to “add contacts in bulk”. Once clicked, it will load the screen with an area to paste your contacts into.

You need to copy and paste your contacts into where it says paste the contacts here.  If you have any additional data about these contacts like first name etc. You can add it here as well. To do this, you need to add a comma after the email address then input the data after the comma.

I had some additional data for my contacts, so I added them separating each field with a comma.

The next stage of your import is to decide what you do with duplicates and fields. You can decide to ignore duplicates or update duplicates. Also for the fields, if a contact didn’t have any data for first name for example, you can choose to input the default value of that field. In this example I have chosen to ignore duplicates and not place a default value for the fields.

You also need to decide what you are going to do with these contacts once they are imported.  Whether you are importing the contacts into a list of just updating existing contacts, BulkMail can cater for this. In this example, I am importing the contacts into a list in the account.

Then you are ready to click the add contacts button.

If you added any additional information to your contacts BulkMail will take you through a mapping stage where it asks you to map the data to a field in the database. All you need to do is select what field each column of data corresponds with. If the field is not there, you can create it by clicking the pencil Icon.
