I think this plugin is way too overpriced and to top it off you cant test most of the plugins features to see if its compatible with your setup until you pay. I found another plugin that does the same thing for free.

I have been a loyal user of the Premmerce Permalink Manager for WooCommerce plugin for quite some time and, until recently, had been quite pleased with its performance. However, my recent experience has left me disappointed and frustrated, prompting me to reconsider my choice. The primary issue revolves around the plugin’s lack of compatibility with the latest WooCommerce HPOS update. In my attempts to keep my site up to date and take advantage of the promised improvements in speed, user experience, and security, I found myself at a crossroads. Despite reaching out to the support team, my inquiries about a potential update or timeline for compatibility with HPOS were met with silence. This lack of responsiveness and transparency from the developers is disheartening. As a user, I rely on timely updates and clear communication about the plugin’s roadmap. Unfortunately, the absence of information regarding compatibility with crucial WooCommerce updates has left me with no choice but to explore alternative solutions. While the Premmerce Permalink Manager did serve its purpose well in the past, the current situation has forced me to reevaluate its effectiveness. A plugin that fails to adapt to the latest industry standards and lacks a clear roadmap for future compatibility raises concerns about its long-term viability. In conclusion, the Premmerce Permalink Manager for WooCommerce falls short when it comes to keeping up with the latest WooCommerce updates. For users like myself, who value staying current with industry advancements, this plugin’s lack of responsiveness has become a significant drawback. I am now actively searching for alternatives that can provide the necessary compatibility and support for my evolving e-commerce needs.
