Lead Submission Responses

The default response format is based upon the format of the data submitted.  For instance, if you post via query string or form post, a redirect URL will be returned.  If a lead is submitted via XML, an XML response is returned and likewise if a lead is submitted via JSON, a JSON response is returned.

Note: When submitting leads you must use one of the following methods:


However, the response format can be specified by appending one of the following parameters to the Post URL: ResponseFormat=redirect, ResponseFormat=xml, and ResponseFormat=json.

By posting the desired name value pairs to your post, you will receive the appropriate response back.  The list of error codes and error messages you may receive back are located at the bottom of this page.
