Ghost allows you to import your existing audience and subscribers in an easy way to access content on your new membership website. You can export any external list of supporters, email subscribers or patrons and make sure your audience are able to access your content on your brand new Ghost site.
Gather your subscribers list
Prepare your CSV file
We've created a downloadable template to help you get started. It's recommended to clean your exported data before importing it into Ghost for the best possible outcome.
Imports should be in a CSV format and support the following fields:
name- full names
note- member notes
subscribed_to_emails- [true/false] identify which members will receive email newsletters
stripe_customer_id- unique Stripe customer ID to import existing paid subscribers
complimentary_plan- [true/false] import members who have a free subscription
labels- Labels need to be in quotes and comma separated for multiple
created_at- Date format ISO 8601:
Import your CSV file
1. Navigate to the Members dashboard in Ghost admin
2. Click the Settings icon at the top-right of the screen and select Import members
3. Upload your CSV file and make any further required changes before clicking Import members
It's also possible to automate keeping your members list up to date using our Zapier integration to automatically send new subscribers that have been added to other apps directly into Ghost, or vice versa.
