This URL Redirect is painful.

For the lif eof me I can't figure this out. I'm adding a URL redirect that goes from one product /product1-2-3/ to my new shopify website https://www.newsite.com/product-1-2-3/ however I can't get this to actually redirect. I can submit it but another happens. Does shopify not support redirects to another shopify instance?

Hi @mdcrew,

While you can redirect from any address within your existing domain (or previous paths), you need direct to a valid URL, according to Shopify's own URL structure. So, if you want to redirect to your product, you need to use the following format: 

newsite.com/products/product-1-2-3/

I should have been more direct what I mean is that we need a redirect from oldshopifysite.com/product to newshopifysite.com/product do you know if this is possible?

You could probably use a service such as Cloudflare to create a rule to permanently redirect one domain to another, provided that you use the same product handles.
