Mass unsubscribe
  • I'm looking to move a list from mailchimp to sendy and would love the ability to import the unsubscribe and or cleaned lists there

    Yes you can. Export the CSV of the list from Mailchimp without the unsubscribers. Then import into Sendy.
  • I would like to have the unsubscribes in there and marked to avoid them ending back on the list due to another import. The client uses spreadsheets for a lot so things get a bit tricky

    Hey, sorry but there's only 'Mass delete' function and no 'Mass unsubscribe' function. You may want to try marking the unsubscribers manually. Is your unsubscriber list huge?

    About 200 I think. I suppose I could import the unsubs first then manually mark them or perhaps it's something I should do in a query. Thanks

    UPDATE.
    There was about 900 with the cleaned list
    For anyone else interested. I ended up importing in three steps. I exported my mailchimp list in the three parts subscribed, unsubscribed and cleaned. I then...
    1. Import unsubscribes
    2. Update subscribers SET unsubscribed = '1' WHERE unsubscribed = '0';
    3. Import cleaned
    4. Update subscribers SET bounced = '1' WHERE unsubscribed = '0';
    5. Import members list
