There are 2 ways to signup for a DataValidation account:
Signup with ESP
Signup with email address
###Signup with ESP account###
Important: If you signup by linking an ESP, you must login with the ESP.
The app allows you to signup with a MailChimp, AWeber, or MailUp account. When you signup with an ESP account, the lists inside the ESP are automatically imported and your DataValidation account is created.
Once you have signed up with an ESP, you can link additional ESP accounts from inside the DataValidation app, including MailChimp, AWeber, SendGrid, Emma, MailUp or MailGun.
Important: You should only signup once, then add additional accounts from within DataValidation.
###Signup with an email address###
When you signup with an email address, you will receive an activation link via email. Once you click the activation link, you will be directed to set a password.
Your account is now live, and you can upload .CSV files, or link a MailChimp, AWeber, SendGrid, Emma, MailUp or MailGun account. Each list imported will receive a free report, including a list quality score and Email Assurance grades. Important: If you receive a 409 error when attempting to link an ESP account, it means this account has already been linked. You may have signup up with ESP, and now need to login with ESP.
###Import Lists from File###
Import lists by clicking the big red + button on the left navigation. Ensure your file is a .CSV formatted file with the email addresses in a single column. You can have other information in the list, as long as all email addresses are in a single column.
When uploading, select the email column, notate if there is a header row, and change the file name if desired.
When your list is queued for import, it may appear with N/A in the center. If you think there is a problem with your list, please do not remove the list before speaking to a support agent.
Once your list begins to import and analyze, a clock icon will appear, and you may be able to see the status updates including importing, validating, and analyzing. Depending on the size of your list and how busy our system is, the analysis may take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours.
Once complete, you can review the Report Card and purchase the cleaned list results.
