Hi, guys. I don't know how you stil work. I'm will explane. I can't use any your function successfuly. Api doesn't have many useful features. And api work is very bad. Example: after deleting client from list. When i try create user again I got error "http.status.email_address.conflict".

Re: Your service

Hello @user87649,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact's API Support.

 

You didn't specify which version of the API you are using; however in both versions we list our error code of 409 http.status.email_address.conflict. This error occurs when you attempt a POST on an email address that already exists in the account.

 

Based on your description you should be getting this error as you are trying to create a user with an email address that you already added to the account and deleted. Our system does not do a hard delete. You should be doing a GET on the email address first to see if the email address exists in the account first. If it does not exist then you can do a POST to create the contact. If it does exist then do a PUT to update the contact.

 

If you have any questions feel free to email us at webservices@constantcontact.com.


Regards,
Jimmy D.
