Sending phone number?

Mar 17, 2011 at 8:53 PM

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

I am new using this API, but it seems that I am not able to send phone numbers to MailCHimp using this API.  Am I correct?

 

Thank you,

No, you are not correct.

How, you send the phone number to MailChimp is based on whether you actually defined a custom field as a phone type, or just a normal string where you are putting a phone number.

Check out the caveats for phone format if you defined your field as that type.

Personally, I never use the phone type.

Additionally, make sure you check for errors after your api call to see what, if anything might be an issue.
