Can I perform SEO migration from PrestaShop to Magento 2?

Yes, you can migrate SEO URLs from PrestaShop to Magento 2 by picking “Migrate categories and products SEO URLs” additional option.

However, before performing the migration, you need to make sure Friendly URL option is activated on your PrestaShop store. To do so, log in PrestaShop admin panel, go to Preferences - > SEO & URLs. Here, ensure “Yes” box is checked. Then, you can proceed with the migration.

Q: How my URLs will look like after the migration?

Let’s assume that one of the products you’re currently selling on PrestaShop store is named “Faded Short Sleeve T-Shirt”. It has the following URL:
http://prestashop-store.com/tshirts/1-faded-short-sleeve-t-shirt.htm

After migrating to Magento 2 (with the “Migrate SEO URLs” option picked), the structure of “Faded Short Sleeve T-Shirt” product URL will look like exactly the same:
http://magento-store.com/tshirts/1-faded-short-sleeve-t-shirt.html

Q: My product and category links on PrestaShop didn't have .html suffix at the end. Can I get rid of it on Magento 2?

By default, product and category URLs on Magento 2 have .html suffix at the end. However, you can remove it manually via your Magento 2 Admin Panel.

To do this, login your Magento 2 Admin Panel and go to: Stores -> Configuration -> Catalog -> Search Engine Optimization.

Here, delete the .html suffix from the “Product URL Suffix” and “Category URL Suffix” fields and leave them empty. Save the changes.
