There have been a lot of changes to our clients over the past couple of years. Can I delete all of our contacts and then add them back in (with an updated list)?

Hello @KristinaE234 ,

 

Yes this is totally possible. Keep in mind that individual list memberships won't be restored upon the upload, so if you have multiple contact lists you may want to make sure you're re-uploading each list individually. If you just use a singular list for your sendouts, then this is a moot point.

 

Any contacts that you previously had will simply re-upload and not contribute toward your overall contact total. 100% brand new added contacts included in the reupload will count as new contacts, which may impact your grand total monthly contacts.
