Does Magento have tech support?
Though Magento is an open source platform, which generally means sparse availability of support, it is not true in this case. Users of the Enterprise Edition receive comprehensive support from the Magento team, whereas Community Edition users can opt for Magento’s solution and technology partners for support services.
Should I go for the Basic or Enterprise edition?
Magento, being open source, is free to download and use, but that is true only for the Basic edition that does not include all the features and add-ons, and has curtailed flexibility, which can work for a basic retail outlet. If you are looking to develop a tailored and feature-rich e-commerce website, it is advisable to go for the Enterprise edition, which may entail notable upfront expenses, depending upon your requirements.
Magento is a powerful open-source platform, with ample scope for customization. Having said that, the cost of add-ons are to be accounted for, when it comes to deciding the commercials of your web development project.
