In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to integrate with Constant Contact using PayKickstart’s API integration.
Step 1: Log into your PayKickstart App
Step 2: In your Vendor Dashboard, click the dropdown box at the top, right-hand portion of your page where your name and profile image is located. In the dropdown, select ‘Integrations’.
Step 3: First, you’ll need to integrate on your main integration page. To do so, click on ‘Auto Responder’ at the top of this page, then, Click ‘Add Email Integration’.
Step 4: Click ‘Add Email Integration’.
Step 5: Choose ‘Constant Contact’ on the dropdown menu for ‘Email Services Available’.
Step 6: Enter your Constant Contact account name, Access Token, and API key and click ‘Connect’.
Getting an access token requires a Constant Contact account. When you click ‘Get Access Token’, you are taken to a Constant Contact account sign up page. Create a new account, or if you have an existing Constant Contact account, sign in. Click ‘Grant Access’ to generate an access token. Copy it and keep it handy.
Step 7: Once you’ve connected, you’ll need to go to ‘Campaigns’ on the left sidebar of your dashboard. Here, you’ll see your campaigns listed. Choose the PRODUCT that you want to integrate Constant Contact with and select “edit product settings“.
Step 8: In the Product settings, select Step 3 (Integrations) to open up your integrations information.
Step 9: In the product settings(integration section), please enable the email integration field.
Step 10: If you’ve correctly integrated with the main area (steps 1-6 in this tutorial), then you can now select ‘Constant Contact’ in the Email Integrations.
- Choose ‘Constant Contact’ as your email service.
- Select your account under ‘Accounts’
- Select the list you want for this campaign under ‘lists’.
- Select ‘tags’ you want to add based on the customer action the integration is set up to trigger for.
*NOTE: You may have a list for every one of your products, so you’d want to choose the list associated with the product in this particular campaign.
*Note: Vendors can pass custom checkout fields they have added to their checkout pages, to their email auto-responder (as long as the email service supports it).
Now, when a customer purchases your main offer product, they’ll automatically be added to this Constant Contact list that you’ve chosen.
