Looking to upgrade from eWallet GO! to full eWallet® on your Mac but need to import your data? You've found the right article!

(Please note that this feature requires eWallet 8.3.1 or higher for macOS.)

  3. When prompted, save the new wallet wherever you like, typically in your Documents folder — you can use whatever name you like for the new wallet
