Create front-end Gravity Form that creates a WooCommerce product


I've been banging my head against the wall on this one for hours, and I'm still stuck.

I'm working on a website that will connect authors to readers. To do this, the (registered / logged-in) author will fill out a Gravity Forms form on the front end, which will create a WooCommerce product. Readers will see the book, purchase the book using the MyCRED credit system (already in place), then download the book.

To answer potential questions...

Yes, the form needs to be on the front end. I have a Developers version of Gravity Forms, and I'd prefer to use it (thank you, conditional logic). If you have a better suggestion, it doesn't have to be used.

Fields in the form should be mapped to WooCommerce's product page, including the genre of the book (checkboxes - mapped to the respective categories), author's name, word count, and a couple of file uploads (book cover displayed publicly and the book itself, downloadable after someone buys it)

There shouldn't be a need for an admin to approve the post / product.

Payment goes to the person who can either A: give clear, step-by-step directions, or B: do it themselves. Questions?

Can you instruct me on how to configure Gravity Forms and WooCommerce to meet the goals listed above, or can you do it yourself?

Sébastien | French WordpressDesigner comments:

have you tried to use the differents fields relating to "product" (product, quantity, option etc...), in the administration of your form ? It's simple.

Respectfully, please re-read the help needed. Mapping the form to the product is what I need help with.

Yes, I'm aware of that extension. That doesn't do what I need to do - create a GF form that creates a WC product.
