BL.INK has two methods available for migrating short links from other platforms. While both methods are relatively simple, the most difficult step of the process can be obtaining an export of your link data from the platform you’ll be leaving. Some of them make it easier than others, and the process is different for each platform.
If you're migrating from Bitly, Post, Shortswitch, and others, there are some steps to follow to obtain the export (outlined below). For other platforms, the process may vary but we will assist in any way we can to help you obtain your short link data. Once you have your data in hand, the migration can begin.
For migration there are two options:
If an import file is available, we recommend adding it directly to your BL.INK account through our import process. This way is quickest and gives you the most control over the import process.
If an import file is not available, BL.INK then utilizes our Auto-Migration Protocol - a unique functionality that will import your links in real-time from your account. To set up an auto-migration, please get in touch with us here.

The link migration process is very smooth with BL.INK, and we’re available to provide assistance at any point in the process. Have additional questions about migrating from another platform? Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you promptly.
