This is an update that has been requested quite a lot since we first introduced the Campaign Monitor API, and it is finally here: The ability to both create and send campaigns completely through the API.
That means that if you have the development skills available, you can completely integrate Campaign Monitor into your existing applications, and have no need to login to the Campaign Monitor website to send emails.
All you need to do is make sure that your account has a payment card setup, or sufficient credits, and the campaign will be sent. After that, it will appear in your reports just like your other campaigns.
We’re also working with some Campaign Monitor customers on creating an all new PHP wrapper for the API, to make it even easier to get started. Watch out for some news on this over the next few weeks. Check out the existing API samples in the mean time.
Again, thanks to everybody who has variously suggested, requested, demanded and pleaded for this feature!
