Hi Constant Contact!
We routinely sent emails to lists of 200,000+ contacts. After a campaign has completed, a PHP script we wrote picks up the results (who received it, who opened, who bounced, etc) and places them into our marketing database.
Due to the 50 contact limit, our script has to send your API a massive number of HTTP requests to retrieve the data for a campaign. This overhead seem to slow the process down considerably.
It would be great if the API could allow a greater number of contacts to be received in a single request, either by default, or with the ability to specify the number to retrieve via a GET parameter.
Are there any known workarounds? (would prefer not to rewrite in a language which supports threads, or implement pseudo-thread child processes). Would it be feasible to add such a function to your development roadmap?
