Connecting Constant Contact to Divi email optin module

I'm trying to connect my Constant Contact account to my website. We use Divi themes on Wordpress. Divi has an email optin module that is asking for the API Key and Access Token for my Constant Contact account. Where can I obtain this information? I've reached out via phone to Tier 1 and Teir 2 customer support and was told I need to be an app developer! Really? How is this not presented in the My Setting page?

 

Anyone familiar with this?

Hello @jeffh824,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support and I apologize you were informed you needed to be an app developer to obtain that information. My team is here to assist outside software developers with questions about building into Constant Contact's API.

 

When it comes to obtaining API Key and Access Token information we use Mashery for our V2 API however with the new implementation of our V3 API that's managed all within Constant Contact via the developer portal where you're able to review documentation and view your API keys.

 

Divi appears to be asking for V2 API information, below is a link to documentation which goes through the steps on how to obtain an API Key and Access Token.

Once again I apologize that you were informed you needed to be an app developer to obtain that information. Please have a look and reply directly to this post if you have any other questions!

I am also having trouble connecting my client's Constant Contact account with his DIVI Email Optin module. I've used both the v2 and v3 tools mentioned above to generate keys and tokens, and when I enter them, they seem to be accepted... however my client's email contact list does not show up in the drop-down menu. I'm stumped... seems to be a very difficult and problematic integration. MailChimp is much easier! I don't know what to do at this point.

For this integration, it looks like you need to generate a V2 API Key and Access Token. Below is a link to documentation on how to obtain an API Key and Access Token along with documentation on how to implement that information into the DIVI/Bloom plugin:
