If you’re looking to create your own eCommerce site, you might’ve come across Magento. There are currently two Magento products: the Community Edition and the Enterprise Edition. Aside from the fact that one is free and the other is not, you might not be sure what the difference is between them and which one is right for you.

We’ve created a beautiful, simple comparison chart to show that Community and Enterprise Editions are functionally very similar. Community is good for most businesses. Features that aren’t available out-of-the-box with Community can be programmed with extensions available for download or custom-built by Logic experts.

For an in-depth comparison of the two editions, click on the infographic below for a larger version.


But wait, what’s the difference between Magento and other eCommerce software, such as WooCommerce, Shopify, and BigCommerce? We’re working on that comparison chart right now, so stay on the look out for the next infographic!

      Since Magento 1.9 CE and Magento 1.14 EE were first released in 2014, not much has changed in terms of their differences. The biggest change in the past year would be the release of Magento 2.x for both Community and Enterprise. With a lot of great new features that built on top of the already robust platform, Magento 2 is a great new upgrade for both CE and EE. We hope to report on the differences between Magento 2 CE and Magento 2 EE soon!
