Importing your data

(This guide assumes that you have already registered a Buttondown account. If you haven't head on over to Registration & setup.)

  • Obtain a full export of your Tinyletter data. Follow this Tinyletter support article to export your data. You'll end up receiving a .csv file filled with subscriber data — that's the magic ticket!
  • Upload your subscriber data. Go to your Subscribers page and click on the "Import" button at the top of the page; you should be prompted to upload a CSV. Find the CSV you just downloaded and upload it; you'll be prompted to map some of the fields in that export to Buttondown ones in order to make sure Buttondown understands your previous subscribers.
  • Upload your archive data. Go back to your Emails page and click on the "Import" button, choosing the "Tinyletter" option. This time, type in your Tinyletter username!

That's it! Once you've done all of the above steps, Buttondown will kick off an audit and migration process to make sure everything is in tip-top order, and then you should be safe to disable or deactivate your Tinyletter account.
