Recently, Google changed its Product Structured Data schema with the most recent Price Drop Rich Result for E-Commerce site product pages, it is also known as Price Drop Appearance.

What is rich result and How to use this?

Add markup to your product pages so Google can give product details in rich Search results — including Google Images. Users can see price, accessibility, and product ratings directly on Search results.

Utilizing markup to empower rich product results allows you to pull in possible buyers while they are looking for things to purchase on Google Search or pictures that incorporate items you sell. Keep up the accuracy and newness of your item data, so your customers locate the relevant products they’re searching for.

What is Price Drop?

Price Drop help users comprehend the most minimal price for your product. In light of the running average of your product’s pricing, Google naturally figures the Price Drop. The price drop appearance is accessible in English in the US, on both mobile and desktop.

To be qualified at the Price Drop Appearance, add an Offer to your Product structured date. The price should be a particular cost, not a range (for instance, it can’t be $50.99 to $99.99).

How Price Drop rich results works in Google Search?

Google tracks your product pricing changes on their back-end. So for instance, product X has a price-purpose of $10 for an all-encompassing time period (for example 50 days) and afterward the price changes to $6. Google would assume that a long-standing price-point has changed, so your Product Ad would be qualified to show that “40% price drop” snippet.

Below are few examples with structure data which can be applied to product pages to utilize Product information, Shipping details, and Price Drop in Google Search result.
