Hi, Gal Yish!

Lisa here from the Shopify Support Team. 

Are you wanting to condense the URL? If the customer accesses the product, through a collection, it will show the breadcrumbs of how the customer got there through the URL. 

Whereas, if the customer directly goes to the product from an original link, it will not show the breadcrumbs of how they got there. It would just show:

Although it will still have the additional fields, you can customize your product and collections URL to help reduce the length of the URL. 

To do this, click into the product or collection scroll down to 'Edit Website SEO' and click on the link, to update the product or collections name. 

If this was still really bothering you, you could always try adding URL redirects to condense the links. Here's how to add a URL redirect. 

Hope this helps to clarify! Please let me know if you have any questions.

The URL strcuture of Shopify is this:


I want it to be


It provides better SEO and better customer experience since shorter URL

Moreover since my website is in France, it has no sense to display the words "collections" and "products"


How could I play with that? (I'm fine playing with the code)


Let me know thanks!
