Re: Adding deleted contact

Hello @YosvaniA,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact's API Support.

 

Our system does a soft delete of contacts which means the email address still technically exists in the account. In order to use it again instead of creating that contact with a POST you would update it with a PUT.

 

If you are using our v2 API then you would use this endpoint.
