A key element of successful Constant Contact integrations is the partner’s ability to manage the customer lifecycle. To better facilitate this, we’re updating our partner-only account management API endpoints to our RESTful v2 API architecture. The new partner-specific endpoints are now available on a preliminary, case-by-case basis to partners selling the ToolKit product suite (and not our Standalone Products) prior to a general release. Here’s the ToolKit account management functionality currently available:
- Create a new account
- Cancel an existing account
- View/Update detailed billing information
These new account management endpoints are available only to approved Constant Contact Technology Platform partners. Learn more about the benefits of being a partner. If you’re already a partner of ours and interested getting access to these endpoints, work with your Constant Contact account manager.
The partner ToolKit account managment endpoints use basic authentication, as opposed to OAuth 2.0 used by all other v2 endpoints.
We will be rolling out additional features in 2014 to create a robust, full-featured account management suite for our partners. Some anticipated features coming in 2014 include:
- Billing tier change notifications via WebHooks
- OAuth 2.0 access token generated as part of creating a new account
