What types of lists can I import? Do my contacts have to reconfirm subscription?

You may import any permission-based mailing list into GetResponse.

All imports are single opt-in, meaning that we will add your subscribers to your list without sending them a confirmation email or asking them to click a link to verify their subscription. We are assuming that you have the permission of every subscriber on the list you are importing.

Before the list is imported to your campaign it will be run against multiple algorithms that estimate the list quality. Depending on the results of the evaluation the list can be approved or rejected.

If you do have permission from your subscribers, but you haven’t engaged the list for a while and believe it may be stale, here is how to fix a stale list.

Prohibited list imports

If your list is not permission-based, it is prohibited to import it into GetResponse. Such lists can degrade our email reputation and cause deliverability problems for all of our customers.

Please do not import any lists where you don’t have explicit permission from every subscriber. Such lists may include: purchased leads (even if they come with “claimed”opt-in information), so-called “safe lists”, list-washed, bought or purchased email addresses, rented lists, co-registration leads etc.

Importing a non-compliant list is a violation of our ToS and may affect your account standing.
