Can I get contact list from an existing account

0 Votes

I have a customer who already has a Constant Contact account. They want to be able to programmatically add signups from their website to an existing list in Constant Contact. I'm assuming I will need to have them authorize the app to grant access to the application? Am I on the right page? Once I do that, I can query for the list and then add/sync users to the list?

Hello JasonS2369 ,


Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support. My team is here to assist outside software developers with questions about building into Constant Contact's API.


There are a few different ways that you can accomplish connecting a website sign-up form to Constant Contact. I’ll list them for you below:


Option 1:
If their website is currently using an existing 3rd party sign-up form that you want to connect, you’d want to refer to the documentation for that form to see if it is able to connect to Constant Contact and which version of our API it uses to make that connection. We have two different versions of our API, so the steps you take to get this information will depend on what version of our API the integration you are looking to connect with uses. I’ll also include the steps to get the list identifiers for each version if that is not something that the form that you are using pre-populates for you.




Option 2:
If you are looking to develop your own custom sign-up form integration from scratch, we offer all developers free access to our API endpoints to allow them to build their own forms and integrations between Constant Contact and other software/platforms.

Option 3:
We also offer a variety of pre-built sign-up forms through Constant Contact that you can design through our site, and then just paste the HTML code into your website:
