Hello JenniferC8130,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support. My team is here to assist outside software developers with questions about building into Constant Contact's API.

 

It looks like your site was created via Ordereze and that the form you currently have installed was either created through their service or through a 3rd party, but I wasn’t able to tell based solely on the form code. Looking at the Ordereze website, I don’t see any documentation regarding connecting the existing form with Constant Contact, but you could definitely contact Ordereze’s support team to see if that’s an option they offer:

If the form is 3rd party, feel free to let us know the name of the plugin that you are using. While the support we can provide for 3rd party integrations is limited, we’re happy to take a look and see if we can provide you with any additional insight.

 

If you developed the form yourself, you can program it to connect with our API and sync contacts over automatically by using our Sign-Up Form Endpoint, which allows you to add contacts to an account without having to make a separate API call to check if the email address already exists for a contact in the user account.

I need to connect our online orders from our website to CC.  We use Toast to power our website and for online ordering capabilities.  Can you help me connect our online orders with CC?  Thank you.

Hello JenniferC8130 ,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support. My team is here to assist outside software developers with questions about building into Constant Contact's API.

 

After taking a look online, I wasn’t able to find any pre-built third party integrations between Toast and Constant Contact. You may want to also check with Toast to see if they have any feature like this, in case it exists but is not listed in a public facing resource. 

 

If you are unable to find a 3rd party integration that meets your needs, Constant Contact provides developers with free access to our API endpoints so that you can build your own application for integration. However, it looks like, while Toast does offer API access, the documentation is not public facing, and their API access is only available to those with active accounts and partner status approval. (links below)

 

Toast Partner Program

https://pos.toasttab.com/partners#partnership-options

 

Constant Contact V3 API Documentation

https://v3.developer.constantcontact.com/api_guide/getting_started.html

 

When programming/building your own integration, you’d set it up to call the data of your choosing in Toast using their API, have your program sort out which variables you need, and then use Constant Contact’s API to send that data through to the desired list (or vice versa).

 

Please have a look and let us know if you have any other questions!
