Product Schema Type

If you run an eCommerce store – you can start reaping the benefits of the Product Schema type and keep up with your competition. There are two main scenarios in which you would use this structured data markup type:

  • A product page that describes a single product
  • A shopping aggregator page that lists a single product

Here’s an example of one of the rich snippet types/search features that your website can earn when you make use of the Product Schema type:
