This article walks through how to add your customer list using CSV files. This is the preferred method if your store is not located on the Shopify platform.
Log in to your PostPilot account and click on Integrations from the left side navigation.
Under CSV Files, click on Manage.

You'll need to provide a unique tag to identify your customer list. Enter it into the appropriate field. The tag key will auto-populate below.
Next, select the file you'd like to upload by clicking Choose File. At this point you can drag and drop or select a file to upload.
Please note: The maximum number of rows that we allow in an upload is 50K. You should break up your file if it is larger than that.
Your file can contain the following fields:

We attempt to format Countries into two digit codes
If a record is a US address we'll attempt to auto format States into two digit state codes
If a record is a US address we'll attempt to add leading zeros to 4 digit zipcode.
We'll attempt to parse dates and serialize them into iso 8601 format.
