Wondering how long it will be before your list imports and you can start testing your campaign? You’ve come to the right place.

When you first sign up to SparkLoop, you’ll be prompted to select your ESP so we can import your email list. This will help SparkLoop generate unique referral codes and links for each subscriber so their referrals can be tracked.

The syncing will start immediately. But depending on the size of your list, it can take some time.

How much time?

It’s hard to say, but basically, it comes down to the size of your list.

For small lists of up to 50,000 subscribers, it’s unlikely to take more than half an hour, but if you’ve got a million subscribers on your list, then a couple of days (or more) wouldn’t be out of the question.

⚠️ The sync is necessary for your account to work and for your unique referral links to be generated. Do NOT send any emails that include SparkLoop custom fields until the import is finished.

If it’s been more than 24 hours and your list hasn’t yet finished importing, feel free to contact us on the status. You can do so here.
