I'm trying to import my contacts from MailChimp to Shopify but keep getting this error "Missing header: Email"

Anyone know what the issue can be?

Thank you,

Hi Maja

This is an indicator that your file is not correctly formatted. Please open it in notepad and check the file only has one row for column headers and they are also separated by commas and not other characters.

You can also export an example file from Shopify and use it as a template to then reimport.
