How to increase your import limit

You have the power to increase your subscriber import limit to 10,000 directly from your beehiiv account. Should you need to further increase your limit, you'll need to fill out a form and reach out to support, as outlined below. You can also refer to this article for more information on why you have an import limit in the first place. 

1. From the left hand panel in your account, go to Settings > Publication > and select the Import Subscribers tab, or click here.
