Adding deleted contact


If i deleted a contact and i want to add the same contact again API responses with contact already exists but it is deleted. Is there any way to add deleted contact using API?

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.
