Woocommerce change product permalinks

There are two easy ways of changing the permalinks on your Woocommerce products.

The first method is to change the permalink on an individual product.

Changing the permalink on one product

The first solution on my Woocommerce change product permalinks tutorial is a quick fix allowing you to change the permalink on a single product. To do this, first of all you need to open up your WordPress dashboard and navigate to the product whose permalink you wish to change.

So follow these steps to do this:

  1. Access your WordPress dashboard
  2. Click Products
  3. Find the product you wish to edit
  4. On the permalink at the top of the page, click edit
  5. Type in your new permalink and click save
  6. Make sure you setup a redirect if this product has any links pointed to it
  7. Voila!
