The Preserve Path feature is best suited for store owners who have created cloned stores for multiple countries and want to redirect visitors from the initial store (specific page) URL to the exact same page URL on their native store.

Let’s understand the functionality with an example: 

We have 2 Store URLs – 

US Store –
Canada Store –

A visitor visits ‘‘ and navigates to the product ‘‘. On the current page, if the visitor selects ‘‘ from the switcher, they will be redirected to ‘‘ on the same product path, if available.

Note: In case the same page URL is not present on the destination (Germany store) then it will show a 404 error.

For a better understanding of the functionality, check the video.

For any assistance with switcher configurations, please feel free to reach out to us at
