When on a category page my URL is in the form: and when on a product page the URL is in the form:

How would i remove product-category from the first and shop from the second?

Providing this is possible is it recommended i.e. it would look better but how would it affect SEO?

    You can remove, so to speak, the shop by making the Shop page the Front Page in WordPress. Otherwise, it is a page and the slug does not go away any more than your 'About' or 'Contact' pages would and all products are a subset of the shop page.

    The category slug is a little different and is hard coded in as part of the WordPress rewrite rule for the 'product-cat' custom WordPress taxonomy. Here is a small piece of that:

    'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => $category_base . _x('product-category', 'slug', 'jigoshop'), 'with_front' => false ),

    So, no ... you really can't.
