Hello,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support.

 

The issue is that you are including an "address_type" field in your "addresses" object which is not expected. This is not able to be used because there is no column header available for it. If you remove the address_type from your JSON, the call will complete successfully.

 

Please let us know if you have any other questions!

 

Regards,

David B.
