How to create redirects after migrations from/to WooCommerce?

Cart2Cart creates redirects to the new products and categories during migration from or to WooCommerce as an additional option. Before the data transfer, however, you need to install a free “Redirection” plugin.

  1. Install the plugin:
    • Enter your WooCommerce Admin Panel
    • Hold the mouse over Plugins in the Left Nav menu and choose Add New
    • Enter "Redirection" in the search field
    • woocommerce redirection

    • Tap on Install Now button
    • woocommerce redirection

    • Once the installation is finished, click on Activate
    • woocommerce replatforming

    • Choose Installed Plugins from the Plugins tab
    • Find "Redirection" and click on Settings
    • Press Start Setup button
    • woocommerce migration

    • Check "Monitor permalink changes in WordPress posts and pages" and "Keep a log of all redirects and 404 errors". Click on Continue Setup
    • woocommerce migration

    • Click on Finish Setup
    • woocommerce migration

    • Tap on Finished and your plugin is ready to use!
  2. Go to Cart2Cart Migration Wizard
  3. Choose “Create the 301 redirects on your target store after migration” additional option
  4. Launch Full migration

Additionaly, we suggest implementing such settings in Permalinks menu in your WooCommerce admin panel:
