Magento ecommerce platform offer customised solutions with different modules and extensions. Profitability of an organisation increases with this open source platform. On 8th February 2011, Magento took a giant leap towards advancement. It announced the release of Enterprise Edition, Professional Edition, Community Edition, and Magento Platform. Here we shall discuss about some of the new features of Magento enterprise release:


Order Management: One of the greatest advantages of Magento platform is the way orders are managed. With the help of call centre module, administrators get transparent control over an e-store. For different products, product configuration changes can be done by a call centre representative on the admin side and by the customers during the course of the complete shopping process. Customers can easily remove products from the shopping cart to the wish list and vice versa. Magento offers different order status such as pending, waiting, suspected fraud, decline, complete, cancelled, processing, payment, and new. Magento ecommerce solution has made it easier for customers to easily manage as well as customise status of their orders with this new up gradation.

Payment Methods: Authorize.Net and PayPal are the two payment gateways added by Magento. Admin can quickly add new or customise payment methods with this. The different payment methods included are gift cards, prepaid cards, debit cards and credit cards. Admin selects the mode of payment based on the rules and regulations of a country. Customers can make payments on Authorize.Net or PayPal from any integrated iFrame page, without worrying about the aspect of security. This particular feature does not support multiple-shopping checkout or partial authorisation.

Authorize.Net Payment Functionality Enhancements: New features that Magento ecommerce provides are compliant with authorization of .Net payments. Three new features related to this are authorisation reversal, partial authorisation and balance response. These features help customers use multiple gift cards, pre-paid cards, debit cards for online purchases.

• Balance Response help customers and administrators access card balance information in course of order confirmation on credit memos, shipping and invoice.

• Partial Authorization allows customers to make a single order payment using five pre paid cards, debit cards and gift cards. This flexibility extends to all orders. With a single order ID, administrators as well as customers can view multiple transaction authorisations.

• Authorization reversal helps customer decide if they want to cancel an order. In this case, the administrator can release payments without waiting for any further information.

• Gift options feature is added for product level as well as system level for all product types. Administrators generally charge for gift wrapping and at times can also add taxes for this option. Information regarding gift wrapping is included in credit memos, shipments, invoices and orders.
