Hey Codeinwp, nice analysis, as always. The conclusion though is too tied to the developer’s perspective I think.

Marking that a product also has a Pro version is a signal for the users that the plugin is an active product, that someone is interested in keeping it alive. It’s also a sign that it will receive updates and that support is available as well. It’s something you’d want the users to see

I think it depends a lot on how you present the plugin, the tag alone will not kill sales, nor boost them.
