schema.org for ecommerce just got a lot more granular
As announced on the schema.org
blog, the GoodRelations vocabulary from has now been integrated into schema.org
This is a major
extension of ecommerce types and properties available via schema.org
. The featured screenshot shows an example of just how much the vocabulary has been extended.
From the post:Effective immediately, the GoodRelations vocabulary (http://purl.org/goodrelations/) is directly available from within the schema.org site for use with both HTML5 Microdata and RDFa. Webmasters of e-commerce sites can use all GoodRelations types and properties directly from the schema.org namespace to expose more granular information for search engines and other clients, including delivery charges, quantity discounts, and product features. Enumerated lists of values remain managed at GoodRelations URLs, following our general approach for referencing 'external enumerations'.

has augmented the announcement with some great information on how the integration works, along with some code examples:http://blog.schema.org/2012/11/good-relations-and-schemaorg.html
A great step forward, IMHO, in the application of structured data for ecommerce.
