Bulk import of contacts using HTML

Can I use plain HTML to post a new contact to a contact list ?

I would like from Within a form page have a post method and and the action would be the api.

Is this possible ?

Thanks

The short answer - no, for our v2 API all payloads must use JSON. You can read up on our v2 REST-ful API here. Our v1 API only supports XML payloads. 

 

Bulk upload doucmentation for v2 API

Thanks for the quick reply.

I saw that you can use curl,  has this been a successful process to use when updating bulk contact lists ?

Yes, you can do bulk imports using whatever you're comfortable with - some/most of our SDKs have methods supporting bulk imports, check though to make sure they have both JSON and multipart methods, here.
