Update Contact HTTP POST

The update-contact HTTP POST function is a system for Infusionsoft to notify Memberium that an update has been made to the contact, and that Memberium needs to update the contact’s records. This is a more efficient system than having Memberium constantly check for updates. It’s also more efficient than using the [memb_sync_contact] shortcode, which will resync the contact everytime the page it’s on displayed, and not only after changes.

[memb_sync_contact] may be preferable if you need the contact resynchronized immediately in a time critical manner before the rest of the page loads. If you’re simply redirecting to a thank you page, then the update-contact HTTP post should be sufficient.

Pre-Built update-contact Link

To make it easier for you to setup your HTTP POST actions, we’ve supplied a pre-built update-contact HTTP POST link URL in your Memberium dashboard at the bottom of your Basic Options page.

Simply copy and paste this into your Campaign Builder or Action Set, no other setup is necessary.

Other Notes

http://example.com/?operation=update-contact&auth_key=foo
or
http://example.com/?operation=contact-update&auth_key=foo

Both update-contact, and contact-update work identically.

Parameter #1
operation=update-contact
Required
Operation sets the type of action to take on the HTTP Post.

Parameter #2
auth_key=foo
*REQUIRED*
You can define your HTTP Send POST Auth Key in i2SDK.

This function will update the local contact database with the contents of the HTTP POST.

Create Password HTTP POST

Memberium provides tools for automating user password creation. In the original Infusionsoft Legacy Order Forms it was simple to add a password field to the order form and mark it as required. However the new Infusionsoft Order Forms don’t make it easy to do this. To simplify the new user onboarding process, we provide an HTTP POST that you can use to safely generate new passwords, which you can then email to the user in their welcome email.
