Re: url prompt me usernam and password

Hey, it sounds like you are accessing the API through your web browser, which is why you are being prompted to provide your login credentials. You could concatenate your API key and username as api_key%username and your account password to authenticate successfully, but ideally you would make your calls via a script running on your web host or server that can capture and store the information in our API's response. You can find some examples and wrappers that facilitate development among our code samples and if needed you can look for an expeirenced Constant Contact developer to assist you by searcing our developer database.
