Initial Import Of Data

Hi guys,

I am working with a client who has over 250,000 records that need to be imported in the initial import of their data. Is there a tool that I can use that will allow me to import that volume in the initial import. They don't want to pay for a subription as once the data is on the system then that's it, there won't be anymore mass imports.

Hi Nevin,
Oh! Sorry I thought you needed to know the capacity of each. ANyways there is a link https://dataloader.io/pricing-faq which should give you more details. All subscriptions are monthtly and auto-renewed every month. You can cancel at any time.
Hope this helps

Hi Niraj,

Thank you for your response.

I am familiar with Data Loader but I am restricted only 50K imports per month using the free version. My requirement is for over 250k records for the first initial import of data, after which I will not have any need for it.

Can I achieve this with Data Loader?

Yes Nevin, Data loader can handle 5 million records. Data import wizard has a limit of 50K.

Hi Arti,

Thanks for your response.

I know of the volume capabilities of both the Import Wizard and Data Loader. My question is, is there a monthly subscription option with Data Loader which allows me to only pay for 1 month, which would allow me to do the initial mass import of 250K + records and then cancel the subscription?
