Vcards is an electronic business card that you can to send other people by making use of email. After receiving the vcards the receiver can use many devices and email clients available for opening vcards. The steps to convert contacts from vcards to .csv file format are very simple. You need to open the browser and login into your email account. After signing into your account you need to export your contacts as vcard file into email client software. You can export the contacts from the vcards from the file menu and save the vcard in your computer system. Now you need to open the browse to the vCard to LDIF/CSV Converter page. Now you need to select the exported file from the saved location. If you are using Google Mail then you need to select csv from the format drop down menu. After selecting the file you need to click on the convert button and then save the newly created csv file. Now you can import the csv file into your email account and make sure that all the entries are in correct place.

Vcards are sent to other people as an email attachments so that when the receiver opens it then he can easily view the contact details and add it to his own contact list. You can make use of Microsoft outlook software for converting contacts to vcards. You need to install Microsoft outlook and double click on it to open it. After opening the Microsoft outlook window you need to select contacts from the navigation pane so that it can open your contact list. Now you need to select the contact list which you want to convert to vcard. After selecting the contact click on Microsoft Office button and scroll down and then click on “Export to vCard File” button. You need to enter the file name for the vcard and click on save button to save it.
