How do import consumers information to Create Secure Payment Profiles?

You can create multiple Secure Payment Profiles at one time by creating an import and uploading it to your Bambora account. 

You will first need to create an import file based on our guidelines outlined below.

Must know:

  • When creating your import file you will want to make sure it’s saved as a CSV (comma separated value) format. 
  • The file you upload must be under 30MB (approximately 50,000 profiles)

  5. You will get a response:

  1. Using a spreadsheet program (like Excel), you will want to format your file using the table below. If you incorrectly format your file, it will cause a fail upload to occur. Do not skip line items, even if you are not filling in that information.
