I manage a website for the sale of online courses on WordPress platform, the 'e-commerce today is managed with simplecart.js and products are interpreted by wp as articles, unfortunately adding woocommerce management products created me problems with the titleurl and then with links to products already indexed and ranked on google.
The permalink of woocommerce uses a slug initial "shop" that I changed into "courses" (The category of the old site). By setting as follows permalinks are able to make the same titleurl.
WordPress old site
The products in google with the old management are indexed with some subcategory (site.com/corsi/sub_category/sample_prduct)
and some without subcategory
With this management woocommerce causes an internal redirect to the product page.
I ask you:
1) The risk of submitting a new sitemap with the title url to date will make me lose the positioning of the products?
2) if I leave the old site sitemap resulting internal redirects to product page will make me lose the positioning of the products?
I hope I was clear
