I came across this post:

How can I change the format of the URL's for products inside the ECommerce module?

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for contacting support.
You can change the Url of product detail in two ways -
1)If you want to remove the published date from the url of the product you can go to Administration->Settings->Advanced->Catalog->Providers->OpenAccessProvider->Parameters and add a new parameter the key of the new parameter will be "urlFormat" and the value will be "/[UrlName]".
Please note that already existing products will not get the route by default. You will have to publish the exisisting products again.

2)You can add a class to your project and make the class inherit from "OpenAccessCatalogDataProvider". You can override the below methods to get custom routing.
Please note that you will need to change ProviderType of catalog (can be changed at Administration->Settings->Advanced->Catalog->Providers->OpenAccessProvider) to have your custom class name.

public override string GetUrlFormat(Telerik.Sitefinity.GenericContent.Model.ILocatable item)
            return "/[CustomRouteKey]/[UrlName]";
        protected override string GetUrlPart<T>(string key, string format, T item)
            if (key == "CustomRouteKey")
                //Use any mechanism to get the route key
            return base.GetUrlPart<T>(key, format, item);

Venkata, when trying to follow example 2 (1 didn't work at all...) I receive the following:

The type 'T' cannot be used as type parameter 'T' in the generic type or method 'Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.GenericContent.UrlDataProviderBase.GetUrlPart<T>(string, string, T)'. There is no boxing conversion or type parameter conversion from 'T' to 'Telerik.Sitefinity.GenericContent.Model.ILocatable'
