So my old website (same domain name) did not have a products directory. My urls were set up as domain.com/product-name.html
It seems I still have some serps sitting out there that are going to a 404 page (and the customer is just bouncing off -as is google bot)
Is there any way to set up some 301 redirects from domain.com/product-name.html to domain.com/products/product-name.html
Any help would be appreciated.

This is an accepted solution.
To add redirects:
1. Go to your Navigation menu
2. In the Navigation screen, under the page header, there is a link for URL Redirects. Click here.
3. Click the "Create URL redirect" button
4. Add the 'From' and 'To' URLs for the redirect.
You are correct. You don't need to include them. You also shouldn't need to include the ".html" extension. Are you seeing that extension in the URL when you go on one of your product pages now?
Here is an example of a redirect we have set up in our store currently:
I do not! I did, however, make a mistake when I first put up the page on shopify and put .html on the url (as I was trying to get it exact to the old site) Not realizing shopify would change that to -html at this point I'm not going to do a double redirect so I'll just leave it as is.
Thanks I really appreciate the responses and the screen shots! they were most helpful!
