Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or problems.

Before we complete our integration, one thing we will need from you is the full set of need identifiers (e.g. what the lead is looking to buy). An eLocal representative will be responsible for mapping all of your identifiers to ours.

Once development is complete and we confirm leads are coming through correctly on the server, we will enable your key to send leads in to the eLocal network.

I look forward to working with you.
