Place a multipage PDF in InDesign

I need to create 700+ badges, 3" x 4". They have 4 separate lines of text (Name, Surname, Position, etc) 

I can create them in Indesign using Data Merge. That would generate a 700-page PDF that measures 3" x 4".
Up until here, all is OK. Now:

I need to print them in 8x11" paper, which would be a 6-up.

How would I import/place them into a new document so that I can have a 6-up page? Like a reflow for PDF.

In Acrobat you should be able to print N-pages per sheet - to PDF.

Another solution is to use the free tool https://www.imposeonline.com/ to generate a 6-up PDF from your 700 page PDF
