Preparing Your CSV File

Before you begin the upload process, your fan data must be formatted correctly in accordance with the following guidelines:

  1. Create a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file.

  2. The file must contain two specific column headers:

    • The first column header should be number (in lowercase).

    • The second column header should be email (in lowercase).

  3. Both columns must be present.

    1. For example, if you only have email addresses to upload, still include the number column, but leave it blank.

  4. Ensure there are NO blank columns or extra columns around the two required columns.

For example, your CSV might look something like this:
