How to create 301 redirects on PrestaShop store after migration?
Cart2Cart service allows you to create redirects of your existing URLs to PrestaShop if the additional option “Create 301 redirects on your target store after migration” is chosen.
How this additional option works?
Cart2Cart creates redirects on your PrestaShop, takes a URL of your source store product (or category), the URL path to it without domain name address, and makes it a Source URL in redirect settings. Then, we set the corresponding new product (category) page as the Target URL, and, thus, the redirection starts functioning. All you have to do is keep your old domain name - customers and Google won’t even feel you have switched.
But, before picking this additional option, you have to buy and install “301, 302, 303 URL Redirects and 404 – SEO Module”:
- Install the module (look for detailed instructions on module pages)
- Go to Cart2Cart Migration Wizard
- Choose “Create the 301 redirects on your target store after migration” additional option
- Launch Full migration
