Hi Alex (and others),

I'm almost there to implent the schema.org on my website.
However, I do have some question left about the correct schema.org markup
(so not Google specific).

I have a page about a keratin treatment, I can use Product markup for this,
because I read:

Commodity services, like haircuts, can also be represented using this type.

This page contains:

- product name (keratin treatment)
- the 'from' price or the pricerange (with a link to seperate price page)
- aggregate userreview count
- single reviews

First, if I choose to show the pricerange, Alex his advice was to use the
AggregateOffer, however looking at the explenation at schema.org, this
looks only appropriate for comparison-websites:

When a single product that has different offers (for example, the same pair
> of shoes is offered by different merchants), then AggregateOffer can be
> used.

Am I right or wrong in this statement?

Instead of showing the pricerange, I was thinking that showing a 'from'
price maybe would be more appropriate. Is there a possibility for this?

*EDIT EDIT: Only using lowPrice with AggregateOffer is giving the 'from'
price, however the question still remains if AggregateOffer is appropriate.*

I'm also working on a e-commerce website, where I also have on product that
can be ordered in many colors and sizes.
When I look at the integrated schema.org in that programm the show the
'from' price with a normal price property, is that correct?

Kind regards,
