I work for a Chamber of Commerce and I am struggling with how to get an accurate list of contacts uploaded to Constant Contact. I would like a way to upload directly from our database (CC Assist) to Constant Contact, rather that having to create an Excel spread sheet first.
You can definetly do this with our API's. We offer multiple ways to integrate our system with your list management, for seamless integration of your contacts.
What you want to do is use the Bulk Activities API and do a POST call with one of the two methods of transferring contacts.
The two different methods are doing a application/x-www-form-urlencoded request, which allows you to send the contacts over as a URL encoded string. The other method would be to do a multipart/form-data request, which allows you to bring the contacts over as a file such as CSV.
If you run into any issues while doing this, or have any questions about using our Bulk Activities API, please let me know and I should be able to help.
