I am not able to add this feature.  Have tried numerous times, but it keeps giving me this message  There was an unexpected error while trying to add Constant Contact to your account. Please try again later.

Hello,

Unfortunately, this is because you used to have Constant Contact through your Homestead account a couple of years ago, and cancelled it. After some time, that Constant Contact account would have been deactivated by Constant Contact. Deactivated accounts on Constant Contacts side cannot be reactivated, and re-adding Constant Contact through Homestead would only be able to use the original account. Unfortunately, this is how it works with Constant Contact. You will need to purchase Constant Contact directly from Constant Contact at this point. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. If this was something on our end that we could change, we would work on that, but this is actually a limitation with Constant Contacts system.

Yes, I had ordered it from them directly, then realized that I could have it through homestead and tried to connect them, but it didn't work so  cancelled from all the troubles.  If I resign up with them is it possible to connect it to my account?

You can use your domain through Homestead, but you wouldn't be able to actually connect the two accounts. You would need to go to constantcontact.com directly to log in and use the service.

I would like to cancel my Constant Contact, but I don't see a cancel button on my Constant Contact tab.
