RatingRange

Description

Elements of type RatingRange must contain a single rating. This rating should not be aggregated from multiple ratings. Do not use "0" or any other value to specify "no rating". If no rating is available, then the particular rating element should not appear in the feed.

The rating should be in xs:decimal format and is a required field.

Attributes

Elements of type RatingRange have the following two attributes.

Name Format Occurrences Description
min xs:nonNegativeInteger Required (1) The minimum possible number for the rating. This should be the worst possible rating and should not be a value for "no rating". If your ratings scale starts from 1, please do not enter 0 for this attribute.
max xs:nonNegativeInteger Required (1) The maximum possible number for the rating. This should be the best possible rating.
