    Three main factors:

    1- Amateur Players are less consistent than professionals, they would miss their shots quite often.

    2- Professionals win money at playing or coaching badminton.

    3- Amateurs join small local badminton clubs such as regional or provincial. And as for Pros, they're national or international and hence ranked as well.

    The defining characteristic difference is this: professionals earn money playing badminton; amateurs don't.

    The other obvious difference is that professionals are better than amateurs in almost all cases (usually much, much better).

    Really, I would have thought this was pretty obvious

    Advanced player: Someone that is really good
    Professional: Plays for money. It's their job.

    You can have someone that is an advance player, but not a professional because it's not his/her occupation. You can also have a professional who is not an advanced player. It's just that he/she won't be making any money.
