Constant Contact email marketing integration

ConstantContact mailing list integration

With the Constant Contact email marketing integration you can connect your Back in Stock account to your Constant Contact store mailing list. Customers can opt-in to your mailing list at the same time as creating a Back in Stock notification. It is simple to setup and you can select which mailing list new customers are added to.

Once you setup the Constant Contact integration a mailing list ‘opt-in’ checkbox will be added to your Back in Stock signup form. Customers who create a Back in Stock notification with the opt-in box checked will be added to your Constant Contact list.

Note: This integration is available to Back in Stock accounts on a paid plan or free trial period.

I’m using a theme integration for Retina, Mobilia, Responsive, Turbo, or Parallax. I’ve enabled Constant Contact integration but the checkbox doesn’t appear.

After you have enabled your Constant Contact integration install the theme integration again. The snippet will be updated to include the opt-in checkbox.

Common questions

Do I need to connect to Constant Contact to use Back in Stock?

No, the Constant Contact integration is entirely optional. The Constant Contact integration is only used to add customers to a Constant Contact list. Customer notifications are still sent by Back in Stock.

I’m using a custom integration built with the Back in Stock JavaScript API. How can I support mailing list opt-in?

Yes, please refer to the accepts_marketing property in the JavaScript API documentation.
