Automatically add your new Joomla! members to your ConstantContact account for email marketing.
When a member signs up at your website using the standard Joomla! registration form – or any extension that is compatible with that form (most are, including VirtueMart), Joomla! tells the plugin that a new person has registered. The plugin then calls out to Constant Contact. and provides the members Name, Email and other information to ConstantContact.
Constant Contact then handles that just like a regular sign up.
Integrates with Community Builder and JomSocial, as well as any extension that uses the standard Joomla! methods for account registration.

The support staff helped me to work through issues that were related to Constant Contact's new API system and I'm floored by how courteous and wonderful the folks at Intellispire were.
I won't hesitate to recommend this extension to others, it works great. Thanks again Veronica!!
Price was not too bad given what it does.
Installation and configuration was very easy.
However, I have multiple Constant Contact lists and I found this plugin would only ever work on my default list even though the plugin gives you the option to indicate which list (Order #).
Additionally, the options for this plugin do not align with VirtueMart Options in 1.1.19 as VM offers various option for account creation. It just so happens that my cart is set to no account creation and therefore the plugin does not work with this setting.
Lastly, I've tried multiple times to get support and have yet to get a valid workable response from the vendor.
I'm rating it a Very Poor because given the price and it is not 100% functional and the support is absent.
