Need help with Constant Contact API

How to add newly signed up user to constant contact and send welcome email through api? The sent email has to be from one of my hosting email accounts (for eg: contact@domainname.com). I have generated the api keys and access token. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello @ManikRatnaS,

 

You can sign-up contacts through the API and as long as they are added to a list that has the Welcome Email turned on in the Constant Contact account and the sign-up is created with the ACTION_BY_VISITOR parameter then the Welcome Email will be sent.

 

The API does not create or schedule the Welcome Email itself. That will have to be done by logging in to your Constant Contact account directly.

What happens when users click the unsubscribe button? Will the unsubscribe button automatically unsubscribe the user or do we need to code to make it function? Is it automatically managed by constant contact?

Hello,

 

Yes, they are automatically removed from your list and Constant Contact manages this process. See this link for more detail: http://knowledgebase.constantcontact.com/articles/KnowledgeBase/5636-opt-outs-and-unsubscribed-conta...
