I had it working on my site using the default x-cart template and I'm now modifying it to work with Phil's new Ability template and Jon's SEO Category Map mod. Almost all of my products are unique individuals so once sold that product can not be replaced. So, I use my end subcategories as product pages with my products in grid format.

Therefore what I'm doing won't apply to other x-cart sites...

Using the format from the URL above I successfully validated using Google's validation tool. http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets

Hope this helps!

I'm now live on 4.4.5 and Google is picking up and displaying our Rich Snippets perfectly. Really makes our listings stand out.

Hi, Elmirage001,

Was it difficult to implement? I would love to add that to my site as well. Thanks!

Hi Vera, It's not hard to do. My site is a little different in that my products are all one of a kind and fall under specific subcategories so I had to implement a ratings system on my category and subcategories instead of my products. The basic formula is below.
Quote:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Product">
<span itemprop="name">Kenmore White 17" Microwave</span>
<img src="kenmore-microwave-17in.jpg" alt='Kenmore 17" Microwave' />
<div itemprop="aggregateRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/AggregateRating">
Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">3.5</span>/5
based on <span itemprop="reviewCount">11</span> customer reviews
</div>
<span itemprop="description">0.7 cubic feet countertop microwave.</span>
</div>

Thanks for the reply. We have one of a kind products as well, collectibles, antiques and similar products that do not really fit regular product reviews. Wonder if I can use the reviews from Google Checkout for site experience instead? That might be a better fit.
