Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact's API Support.
The current version of our API is using and older version of the contacts system compared to what is available in our website UI. This means that the API does not currently support custom names when using the custom fields. You will need to use the naming structure of CustomFieldn. You can reference the below link for the differences between the API and the website.
You can post a new message in the Community or find us on Twitter Mon-Fri 8am-8pm ET, Sat 10am-8pm ET, & Sun 10am-6pm ET. We've got real people waiting to help you out. Click below to start a conversation!
