Now We integrate Constant Contact with Zap we just created and then add a trigger.


7) Search and look for Constant Contact


8) A good practice is to first look for an existing contact and update it. If an existing contact is not found then system should create one. We need a unique identifier for customers as name can be same between two individuals.We suggest email should be unique identifier as that would always be different even if the name is same. 


9) System needs to know which account on Constant contact to connect to, This steps lets us to connect an existing Constant Contact account and test it to confirm if it is working fine.



10) This is where we set  email to be a unique identifier to search and add\update existing accounts. 


11) Make sure there should be at least one order for system to perform test by sending details from Simpletix to Constant Contact.



12) System will test and confirm if everything is working fine or not.



13)  Also make sure that your Zap is switched On on Dashboard.


14)  We now create a test order to see if new contact is added\updated in System or not.
