  • Last Name
  • Email

Review the Belongs to: for each column found and adjust as needed. When completed, click Finish Adding Subscribers or cancel the import.

6. Once your list has been uploaded and assigned, click Finish Adding Subscribers. Review the Importing Customers – Result and make note of any issues.

  • Imported Customers – Customers successfully added via the upload.
    • Can include customers whose phone number was invalid (and removed) but whose email is valid
  • Duplicate Customers – Customers not imported because they already exist in the platform and/or have not met the Repeat Customer Feedback threshold.
  • Invalid Customers – Customers not imported because data was missing or incorrect. Likely data issues include:
    • Missing first name, last name, or email/phone
    • An incorrect email address (such as aaron@aolcom, the “dot” in .com is missing).

GatherUp will check for duplicate email addresses in your list – only the first occurrence will be imported.

Repeat customers will be uploaded if the Repeat Customer Feedback threshold has been met.

7. Click Close to be taken back to Customer Activity. New customers are now added.
