ImportContacts

Bulk creates, or bulk updates, contacts

This method bulk creates, or bulk updates, contacts in the import file. The import format can either be CSV or Excel. It must include one column called 'Email' or the translated equivalent if your account is using a language other than English. Any other columns will attempt to map to your custom contact data fields. There is a 10MB file upload limit; if your file is larger than this, please break your upload into separate files.
