Hello Arthur7,

Thank you for your question. The number that is added is the product ID, it helps prestashop locate products.

I checked Prestashop's official forum and the only ways to change this is to use an addon module, or modify the site's code.

Here is a link to the Official Prestashop forum page on how to use friendly URL's without the ID number.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below, or contact live Tech Support.

They are available 24/7 via:

Chat (there is a link on the top right).

Thank you,

By default PrestaShop do not remove such numbers and Ids from URLs. Personally I have experienced this plugin and it is working like a charm.
