the main difference/advantage lies in that they....
Explanation:
offer a total service.
"la principal" is a common ellipsis; in this case it could well stand for "diferencia" or "ventaja" because such things are taken for granted.

the primary benefit


Explanation:
... or the most important benefit...

If they're talking about merits, then they are looking at benefits, something special that is offered. :-)

Explanation:
Re-hola. Just a note to point out it should be in 3rd person, as Jackie notes above. That missing accent on "indicó"... Chao :-)

the main merit


Explanation:
the word "principal" refers to some quality, merit, advantage or something further up in the text.
If it's a merit (for instance) I don't think it is redundant to mention it here in the translation for purposes of clarity.

the main (one)


Explanation:
Es evidente que el término "principal" califica a un término mencionado anteriormente.

La respuesta de PaulRoigé es la más indicada. El resto de las respuestas, en mi opinión, son arriesgadas, pues no sabemos con certeza a qué término califica la palabra "principal".
