    Hello,

    We do a lot of drop shipping and need a more robust ecommerce platform,  so were migrating to another ecommerce application.   But we're staying with Sitefinity that we know and love.

    How do we remove the ecommerce portion of sitefinity and free up the /shop directory?  We'll be doing custom URL's so that the product URL's will stay the same as they are now, but we need sitefinity to stop responding to the /shop URL's.

    Thank you!

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Can you please explain more detailed the expected/desired behaviour from Sitefinity. Any use-case scenario will be also useful in order to be able to provide you with proper solution.

    For example, you you remove the Products list widget, the products urls will stop responding (will return 404). Another option depending on your scenario could be to hide the add to cart widget on the products detail page and/or to redirect when product details are requested, etc.

    Hi. Can we just keep the main store page (so the store menu item will remain on the menu) and use the option to just link to a url, then link to the new store home page. In this example all the product pages won't be accessible Any longer.   Would this work?

    Hi,

    If you just want to keep the Products page in the menu, as a Menu Item, you can delete/unpublish your current page and create a new redirect page to the external one.

    Alternatively you can keep the Products list page, but remove the Product list widget and redirect to the new one using code behind or JavaScript on that page.

    Another option is to remove the Product list widget and have some Content blocks with for example sample products (image, some data, link, etc) which to link to the new store.
