The best way to create an import list is to download the sample file to understand the format required. Look for this message on the import page and click the red text.
Here are some other specifications we expect:
File extension must be .csv (e.g. file.csv)
Must be less than 10Mb.
The first row must contain the column names
Columns must be separated by commas
We require that dates be formatted in ISO8601 format (e.g. 2020-05-28T02:54:09+10:00)
