I've created a custom taxonomy for the product post type created by WooCommerce. I want to use this taxonomy to the permalinks of the products.

I stumbled upon this which seemed to be perfect for what I wanted to do. However, I'm having little luck getting it to work. Adding the code in the post I still end up with %item% (which I'm using, rather than %artist%) rather than the term in my permalink.

add_action( 'init', 'ps_taxonomy_item' );
function ps_taxonomy_item()  {
  $labels = array(
    'name'                       => 'Item',
    'singular_name'              => 'Item',
    'menu_name'                  => 'Item',

    'parent_item_colon'          => 'Parent Item:',
    'new_item_name'              => 'New Item Name',

    'choose_from_most_used'      => 'Choose from the most used Items',
  );

  $args = array(

As always it was too simple in the end, was using the wrong hook. post_link is for posts only should use post_type_link instead.

/**
 * replace the '%item%' tag with the first 
 * term slug in the item taxonomy
 * 
 * @wp-hook post_link
 * @param string $permalink
 * @param WP_Post $post
 * @return string
 */
add_filter( 'post_type_link', 'wpse_56769_post_link', 10, 2 );
function wpse_56769_post_link( $permalink, $post ) {

    if( $post->post_type == 'product' ) {
      $default_term = 'no_item';
      $terms = wp_get_post_terms( $post->ID, 'item' );

      if ( ! empty( $terms ) && ! is_wp_error( $terms ) )
          $term = current( $terms )->slug;
      else
          $term = $default_term;

      $permalink = str_replace( '%item%', $term, $permalink );
    }

    return $permalink;
}

I used this very helpful answer for WooCommerce Product Vendors, as I wanted the Vendor in the Permalink. Below is a modified condensed snippet to do just that in your functions.php file.

//VENDOR PERMALINK
add_filter( 'post_type_link', 'wpse_56769_post_link', 10, 2 );
function wpse_56769_post_link( $permalink, $post ) {
    if( $post->post_type == 'product' ) {
      $default_term = 'vendor';
      $terms = wp_get_post_terms( $post->ID, 'wcpv_product_vendors' );
      if ( ! empty( $terms ) && ! is_wp_error( $terms ) )
          $term = current( $terms )->slug;
      else
          $term = $default_term;
      $permalink = str_replace( '%wcpv_product_vendors%', $term, $permalink );
    }
    return $permalink;
}
function wpse_56769_rewrite_verbose_page_rules( $pass_through = NULL ) {
    $permastruct = $GLOBALS[ 'wp_rewrite' ]->permalink_structure;
    $permastruct = trim( $permastruct, '/%' );
    if ( 0 !== strpos( $permastruct, 'wcpv_product_vendors%' ) )
        return $pass_through;
    $GLOBALS[ 'wp_rewrite' ]->use_verbose_page_rules = TRUE;
    return $pass_through;
}
add_filter( 'page_rewrite_rules', 'wpse_56769_rewrite_verbose_page_rules', 
PHP_INT_MAX );
add_filter( 'do_parse_request',  'wpse_56769_rewrite_verbose_page_rules', 
PHP_INT_MAX );
function wpse_56769_request_vars( $request_vars ) {
    if ( ! isset( $request_vars[ 'wcpv_product_vendors' ] ) )
        return $request_vars;
    if ( ! isset( $request_vars[ 'name' ] ) )
        return $request_vars;
    if ( 'no_item' == $request_vars[ 'wcpv_product_vendors' ] )
        unset( $request_vars[ 'wcpv_product_vendors' ] );
    return $request_vars;
}
add_filter( 'request', 'wpse_56769_request_vars' );

Then you would put the tag %wcpv_product_vendors% in the permalinks settings where you want it.

Thanks to the OP @INT for the very helpful answer and doing all the leg work!
