insert contact email into url for 3rd party form

I'm sending a email and I want to auto populate my contacts email address and first name into a 3rd party registration form so they just have to click the submit button instead of typing in their First Name and Email Address.

 

In Active Campaign this is the format we use:

https://ExampleURL.com/affid20?email=%EMAIL%&first_name=%FIRSTNAME%

 

email = mapping for email address in 3rd party form

first_name = mapping for first name in 3rd party form

 

%EMAIL% = How I insert contacts email address from ActiveCampaign

%FIRSTNAME% = How I insert contacts first name from ActiveCampaign

 

Infusionsoft example

https://ExampleURL.com/affid20?email=~Contact.Email~&first_name=~Contact.FirstName~

 

I can't figure out how to pull the contacts email address and first name from Constant Contact.  I've searched the support area.  Please Help.

Re: insert contact email into url for 3rd party form

Hello @ChrisM1621 ,

 

In order to protect the privacy and data of your contacts, we don't actually have a way of syncing this information into a 3rd party form. However, you may want to reach out to your external tool to see if they can provide you with a unique link to access their page for each contact, so that they can auto populate that data on their end. You would just need to export your contact data from our side and send it to the other tool, then import the unique link for each contact, into Constant Contact, and add it as a custom field into the email you're sending out.
