Can someone please tell me how to change the product slug from the Shopify store to something else?

 

For example:

 

Here is my store link for example by default: https://www.example.com/products/my-product-name-goes-here

 

I wanted to get my URL like this: https://www.example.com/games/my-product-name-goes-here

 

I want to replace products slug with games. How is that possible? I can edit the code anything But I can't find it anyway please tell me.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @JBMartin & @AndrewDaniel,

To provide some insight, you cannot redirect URLs that use fixed Shopify paths. This includes /products, /collections, and /collections/all. To learn more about this, you can check out our URL Redirects documentation. 

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

You have to change the URL-Handle. For this, go to your Product. Scroll down to Search Engine Listing and click Edit. Edit URL as prefered. Done

I'm afraid this doesn't assist with the issue.  He is not looking to change the product's URL, but to change /products/ slug that comes before it.

Thank you Blair.  Just to confirm, is there absolutely no way this can be done?  Even if I paid a technical developer to explore a way to set this up?

It could be a critical issue for me to decide whether to use Shopify.  I am building a property auction platform (having built an art auction platform on Shopify previously).  But it looks highly unprofessional if I am referring to properties as 'products'.  So unprofessional that I may need to use an alternative site builder.

Hi @JBMartin,

 

Thanks for the prompt response! 

 

You are correct. URLs that use fixed Shopify paths are not able to be redirected. While I can completely understand the impact, you can check out our URL Redirects documentation for more information. I will however, be sure to share this feedback with our Developers. 

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I am looking to do the same.  Any further advice on this from anyone? 

 

Did you manage to find out if it was possible at all?  I have a property platform, so want to change "/products/2-bedroom-cottage-in-cornwall" to "/properties/2-bedroom-cottage-in-cornwall".
