I am building an online shop for selling products manufactured by others.
Should I use the
original-source meta tag to give credit for the product (or product info) to the original manufacturer or is this tag intended to be used only for news ?

I don't think it's ok.
It seems to be really related to Google News. And I don't think your content to be listed in Google News since it's an online shop.
In the presentation article, Google describe
original-source meta tag as a metatag for Google News.
Also, regarding the help center article, it clearly identify these tags to highlight standout journalism on the web.
