Info needed to make decision

I have waited patiently for the release of CB Subscriptions, along with the rest here. But at this point I am being forced to make a pretty urgent decision.

For the past 3 years I have MANUALLY managed my paid subscriptions as follows:

1. Members from an excel spreadsheet were imported to CB, all active members at that time.

2. New members who pay via Paypal are manually added to CB backend and confirmed via email.

3. Expired members (on a 1 year subscription) are MANUALLY disabled in CB / Joomla backend.

This process has been tedious, to say the least. And each currently active member has a unique expiration date, based upon the date of their last payment.

So my question:

Will I be able to import current member data into CB Subs Plugin -- to include their expiration date??? in such a way that it will work once the plugin is installed?????????

I would likely export the entire list from my joomla/CB install, delete the disabled users entirely.

I am HOPING I can simply add a column for the expiration date and IMPORT the list of active members back into Joomla/CB.

Can you please tell me how you export your users. I am using the older version of Joomla with 1.1 CB. I can see my users in the old Joomla Users and also in CB Users. I need to export the CB users to be able to mass edit the list. My issue is I dont know where to start.
Is there a component to export?

Your can use a very flexible import mechanism to setup initial conditions of your membership group.
