Yesterday, on 20th May 2010, Magento released its Professional Edition and placed it right between Magento Community and Magento Enterprise. It starts with $2,995 USD/yr. But this is not the reason why it is in news. The most highlighted feature of this new edition is its revenue generating feature, which is absent in Community Edition.
Continuous requests and feedbacks from Magento merchants and partners made Magento developers develop a solution which does not only fills the gap, but also caters to the existing demand. With this new release Magento promises to enhance already existed products, and release new additional products to enable merchants to grow their online revenues.
Features provided in Magento Professional Edition
• Reward Points System
• Strong Data Encryption
• Gift Certificates/Cards (Physical and Virtual)
• Customer Store Credits
Magento has also introduced a whole new comparison chart between all three Magento ecommerce platforms- Magento Community, Magento Professional and Magento Enterprise. The comparison chart showcase you all the features existed in all the three ecommerce platforms.
