We have clients who do not use PayPal and do use the Events Feature and want to setup an integrated payment pay flow between an outside merchant virtual terminal account that does have an API and the Constant Contact Events Feature with API Integration.
Clearly put: when attendees register for an event, they should also be given an option to pay now to COMPLETE the entire event registration process. Once this is complete and the payment is made, the merchant account virtual terminal API will send that payment status/info over to the Constant Contact API and change the payment status of the attendee.
What solutions exist or are in place for this activity?
The client currently is using a Canadian Gateway Service Called "Moneris eSelect Plus Account" that does have gateway support for a wide range of existing shopping carts.

Within constant contact there are a variety of ways to acquire contacts, is this wizard technology at all available as a redistributable software? For example - If I want to use that same import contacts wizard tool with another purpose, is this possible?

Thanks. Here is an example of a google conversion code that must be displayed on a page like this:
<!-- Google Code for Landing Page Conversion Page -->
/* <!]> */

(the above link is the THANK YOU or SUBSCRIPTION CONFIRMATION SUCCESS) page, that is where we need to install the google conversion tracking code.
The process flow and purpose again is:
1. we purchase pay-per-click ads with google to drive traffic to what's called a "landing or squeeze" page. (example here: http://www.cc94.com)
2. google tracks how many clicks, impressions, costs, and conversions from clicks of ads that appear throughout google/partner sites and to our landing page.
3. google analytics codes, and google conversion codes are installed into the sites pages for tracking.
4. once a conversion occurs, google tracks it, and gives us an example like:
Ad#1 = Landing Page A = 1000 impressions, 100 clicks @ .10 cents per click = $10 spent on Ad#1 and from the 100 clicks you got 10 leads/prospects/opt-ins/sign/ups. = 10% conversion ratio/rate.
Then as the advertiser, I know that the cost per LEAD = $1.00 because I got 10 leads and spent $10 in total.
We do this all the time with clients using webconsciouscommerce.com but not with our branded constant contact solution at http://www.webconsciouscontact.com

Is there anywhere within Constant Contact & the API that would allows us to:
- create a customized thank-you page via Constant Contact and embed the Google Conversion Tracking Code within it?
- redirect a successful sign-up to a custom url/link outside of Constant Contact that would then allow the Google Conversion Tracking Code to be used
Issue: we are business partners with Constant Contact, have almost 100 active accounts. Our clients are now evolving and begining to do some pay-per-click marketing campaigns, they pay anywhere from $50/$1000 a month with Google.
We need to be able to know exactly how many clicks we get from each ad, and how much each click costs (both of those variables we already know) and finally, how many clicks convert into a sign-up using Constant Contact. Then we will know our Conversion Rate.
Example - 100 Clicks @ $1.00 per Click with 10 Sign Ups = $100 Cost & a 10% Conversion Rate. Going one step further, of the 10% in conversions, how many of those convert to a Sale.
If you have insight, ideas, information related to this post, please contact me, Thanks.
