Change Product Author For WooCommerce


By default WooCommerce doesn’t show or allow you to change the product author.

This plugin adds support for ‘author’ to the WooCommerce ‘product’ post type.

The WooCommerce author will now show up in the products view, the edit product and the quick edit product screens.

Why would you need this plugin?

You need to change the author or a WooCommerce product.

Perhaps you’re a developer who has imported the clients products before launch, and you need to switch all the products over to the clients’ user login.
