2008-12-17 hProduct vs hListing regarding "price" / "quantity" / "shipping" fields

  • open issue! 2008-12-17 raised by NicolasLeroy
    1. In the "out of scope" section, it is explained: _"This microformat does not intend to replicate any of the content proposed within hListing and would defer all money/transactional matters to that microformat"_
    2. However, in the hProduct schema, we have the following fields:
      • "price. optional. floating point number. can be further refined by type (msrp, regular, sale, clearance)" => if the price is the retailer price, then it should be delegated to hListing. We could imagine it represents the "manufacturer" price (which could be different from the retailer price) ; in this case, it should clearly be explained in the schema definition.
      • I would say there is also ambiguity between the responsabilities of hProduct vs hListing for the following fields: quantity / shipping
