By Patty Benitez on Jul 1, 2020 4:05:42 PM

Per the official Magento End of Life announcement, all versions of Magento 1 will no longer be supported after June 30, 2020.  Given this news, Magento 1 eCommerce sites and webstores will no longer be fully PCI Compliant with VISA guidelines starting July 1st.
