New constant contact account


New constant contact account


  Iam trying to create a signup form on my joomla site which is same as constant contact signup form, I need to know which API would help me to create a new account for a user using this signup form. Once the user account is created, he would be using the account to add his contacts and send emails.  I need API key to be generated after signup automatically. Please help.





Hi Tharuna,


I responded to your email about this. The account provisioning API isn't publicly available but we do give it to partners.  ANyone wishing to use this api can email webservices@constantcontact.com for help & documentation.


One point to note: we do not have an API that creates new API Keys.  That needs to be a manual step.  That being said, it is rare that you would need to automatically create a new API Key, since one API Key can perform actions for any number of Constant Contact accounts.  Therefore, you would most likely build your integration, and any user of your integration would simply be using your API Key without necessarily knowing it.
