How to remove product & product-category from urls?

To achieve this, two adjustments must be made. Under Settings > Permalinks, a point (.) must be entered under “Category base products”. In addition, add the following script to functions.php:

add_filter('request', function( $vars ) {
global $wpdb;

if( ! empty( $vars['pagename'] ) || ! empty( $vars['category_name'] ) || ! empty( $vars['name'] ) || ! empty( $vars['attachment'] ) ) {
    $slug = ! empty( $vars['pagename'] ) ? $vars['pagename'] : ( ! empty( $vars['name'] ) ? $vars['name'] : ( !empty( $vars['category_name'] ) ? $vars['category_name'] : $vars['attachment'] ) );
    $exists = $wpdb->get_var( $wpdb->prepare( "SELECT t.term_id FROM $wpdb->terms t LEFT JOIN $wpdb->term_taxonomy tt ON tt.term_id = t.term_id WHERE tt.taxonomy = 'product_cat' AND t.slug = %s" ,array( $slug )));
    if( $exists ){
        $old_vars = $vars;
        $vars = array('product_cat' => $slug );
        if ( !empty( $old_vars['paged'] ) || !empty( $old_vars['page'] ) )
            $vars['paged'] = ! empty( $old_vars['paged'] ) ? $old_vars['paged'] : $old_vars['page'];
        if ( !empty( $old_vars['orderby'] ) )
            $vars['orderby'] = $old_vars['orderby'];
        if ( !empty( $old_vars['order'] ) )
            $vars['order'] = $old_vars['order'];
    }
}
return $vars;
});
