Magento, one of the most flexible, fastest growing e-commerce development platform got a new edition Magento Professional’ edition. A new achievement for Varien who introduced ‘Magento Professional’ just few days back.

Unlike Magento Community Edition, Magento Professional Edition is however not free of cost. But it is not so much costly like its big brother ‘Magento Enterprise’ Edition. The licensing cost of Magento Professional is till date $2995 per year.
