PriceSpecification

Thing > Intangible > StructuredValue > PriceSpecification

A structured value representing a price or price range. Typically, only the subclasses of this type are used for markup. It is recommended to use MonetaryAmount to describe independent amounts of money such as a salary, credit card limits, etc.

Usage: Between 10,000 and 50,000 domains
PropertyExpected TypeDescription
Properties from PriceSpecification
eligibleQuantity QuantitativeValue The interval and unit of measurement of ordering quantities for which the offer or price specification is valid. This allows e.g. specifying that a certain freight charge is valid only for a certain quantity.
eligibleTransactionVolume PriceSpecification The transaction volume, in a monetary unit, for which the offer or price specification is valid, e.g. for indicating a minimal purchasing volume, to express free shipping above a certain order volume, or to limit the acceptance of credit cards to purchases to a certain minimal amount.
maxPrice Number The highest price if the price is a range.
minPrice Number The lowest price if the price is a range.
price Number  or
Text 
The offer price of a product, or of a price component when attached to PriceSpecification and its subtypes.

Usage guidelines:
  • Use the priceCurrency property (with ISO 4217 codes e.g. "USD") instead of including ambiguous symbols such as '$' in the value.
  • Use '.' (Unicode 'FULL STOP' (U+002E)) rather than ',' to indicate a decimal point. Avoid using these symbols as a readability separator.
  • Note that both RDFa and Microdata syntax allow the use of a "content=" attribute for publishing simple machine-readable values alongside more human-friendly formatting.
  • Use values from 0123456789 (Unicode 'DIGIT ZERO' (U+0030) to 'DIGIT NINE' (U+0039)) rather than superficially similiar Unicode symbols.
priceCurrency Text The currency (in 3-letter ISO 4217 format) of the price or a price component, when attached to PriceSpecification and its subtypes.
validFrom DateTime The date when the item becomes valid.
validThrough DateTime The date after when the item is not valid. For example the end of an offer, salary period, or a period of opening hours.
valueAddedTaxIncluded Boolean Specifies whether the applicable value-added tax (VAT) is included in the price specification or not.
Properties from Thing
additionalType URL An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. Schema.org tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.
alternateName Text An alias for the item.
description Text A description of the item.
disambiguatingDescription Text A sub property of description. A short description of the item used to disambiguate from other, similar items. Information from other properties (in particular, name) may be necessary for the description to be useful for disambiguation.
image ImageObject  or
URL 
An image of the item. This can be a URL or a fully described ImageObject.
mainEntityOfPage CreativeWork  or
URL 
Indicates a page (or other CreativeWork) for which this thing is the main entity being described. See background notes for details.
Inverse property: mainEntity.
name Text The name of the item.
potentialAction Action Indicates a potential Action, which describes an idealized action in which this thing would play an 'object' role.
sameAs URL URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Freebase page, or official website.
url URL URL of the item.


Instances of PriceSpecification may appear as values for the following properties

JobPosting 
The base salary of the job or of an employee in an EmployeeRole.
eligibleTransactionVolume Demand  or
Offer  or
PriceSpecification 
The transaction volume, in a monetary unit, for which the offer or price specification is valid, e.g. for indicating a minimal purchasing volume, to express free shipping above a certain order volume, or to limit the acceptance of credit cards to purchases to a certain minimal amount.
minimumPaymentDue Invoice The minimum payment required at this time.
netWorth Person The total financial value of the organization or person as calculated by subtracting assets from liabilities.
