Getting an access token without user consent

I am creating a web service which will create a contact and add that contact to a list. A client will send form data to this web service and this means we don't want the client to see a constant contact page asking to approve the app to add data to its constant contact. 

 

How to do this in v3?

Hello @Kyla92,

 

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

 

What you are describing sounds like a sign-up form of some type. If you create your sign-up form correctly the page that asks to approve/allow the connect will only show to you as the owner of the Constant Contact account and not the person who is providing their contact information.

 

When you create your application to collect contact information please keep in mind that the owner of the website is the person who needs to be logging in and allowing access to the Constant Contact account. The way you do that is by going through the oAuth flow in our documentation.
