Importing Contacts via a CSV File

Recapture now supports Contact Import via CSV Files

As of July 1, 2021, Recapture supports Broadcast emails and with it, the ability to import your contacts from an external source to use for broadcast emails.

You can send email broadcasts to your existing contacts by importing them into Recapture using the import tool on the contacts page. In addition to the contact’s email address, Recapture supports the ability to add extra data to your CSV so that you can use contact segmentation in your broadcasts.

Available Fields

Email address is the only required field, other fields can be left blank if you don’t have that information available.
