I see that sending an email through constant contact itself has emoji support but so far I haven't been able to get it to work with the API. The code source that I'm using is: https://github.com/constantcontact/.net-sdk. When trying to create the campaign I'm getting the following error message:
Exception: json.payload.contains_invalid_characters:The request contains text outside supported character set.
Has anyone gotten emoji's working?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Our API creates what we refer to as a custom code email. That type of email does not have emoji support at this time. I will make sure I submit feedback on your behalf to our developers for adding support for these types of characters.
You can attempt to encode your subject line using UTF-8 encoding; however I'm not sure this will work for emoji's. It is something we've had success with on foreign language character sets.
As an update I was able to get emoji's on the body to work when converting to UTF-8 but the subject doesn't work/look quite right in my solution. At least it's half working!
