Once you click the Buy Now button and enter your payment information, Transformania will process all of the contacts in your list. A list may contain up to 100,000 contacts and, if your list is larger, it may take a few hours to process. You do not need to stay on the Transformania website while your list is being processed. When processing is finished and your transformed list is ready to download, you will receive an email containing a download link. As soon as you download the results, Transformania will permanently delete your data from the system.
You will download your much improved in the same format as your source list (that is, in an Excel spreadsheet). The results file contains two tabs labeled Results Only and Comparison. As the name suggests, the Results Only tab contains your transformed data. The Comparison tab contains a side-by-side comparison of your original and transformed data. Both tabs contain an explanation of what changes Transformania made to each contact’s data.
Before using your transformed list, we recommend that you carefully review it, paying special attention to the last thirteen columns (columns AY through BK). They may contain warnings about particular contacts that you should consider before using those contacts.
