GTIN and Brand Fields on Product Pages
Could you please consider adding GTIN/MPN and Brand fields as standard on product pages? Google and FB require this info to be included in XML feeds for advertised products and so at the moment we're having to create custom fields to capture this info. That's easy enough but then external plugins we frequently use don't see custom fields unless you purchase the pro version and some of those still don't see custom fields so it would make life a whole lot easier for us, and may others I'm sure, if these fields were readily available in the product data section and could just be populated when loading rpdoucts and then easily included in xml feeds or easily visible for other plugins.

For people that actually sell hardware successfully online - this is very important. I do a lot of sales volume and dollars on several sites and this is annoyingly missing in WooCommerce.
The Woocommerce team should be embarrassed by its omission. I guess the boss of that division is feeding his friends some nice undeserved revenue. Maybe he gets a kickback????
My sites seem to be in continuous upgrade mode on a per plugin basis per site. On any given day my site is impacted my multiple backups that slow the site down and then the upgrade cycle again and again. It's nice that this all works but the site seems to be in SLOOOOOW mode for half of its time as a result.
I am quite unhappy with all the upsells to get my site to where it should be for features that I would have assumed were included in its core release. I currently have 60 plugins on each of my sites to get something that looks like I care about my clients. I am happy that I have those options and some of the plugins are above and beyond what I would consider CORE WooCommerce features but more than half of them cost me upsell money per site. Not Cool!!!!
Agreed!!! But they won't, cos people are making too much money out of this omission.
An eCommerce platform that does not have these fields out of the box.... reallly???
