    schema nesting for multiple products and offers

    I'm implementing the schemas from schema.org on a site for a services provider.

    They sell variations of the same service, customised to different user requirements.

    Currently they are have 3 different sign up offers, 3 months, 6 months or a year.

    My question is. Should I mark up variation of the service as a product and have the offer nested within that:

    > PRODUCT VARIATION
    >> OFFER

    Or should I have the company as a kind of global product, the three offers nested within that and then the products within those:

    > GLOBAL PRODUCT
    >> OFFER
    >>> PRODUCT VARIATION

    Or does this matter? Will Google/Bing/Yahoo work out this information?

    If you require any clarification please just ask.

    Thank you for any help.

    Hi davidfitzgibbon. Welcome to SitePoint.

    To be honest, I don't know the answer. But I would first be asking—What will be most clear and understandable for the end user? I think if you get that right, the rest will follow. That's my 2c.

    Thanks ralph.m! Yeah I think I'm going to go with products within the offer.

    It's simpler and makes the information easier to digest.

    Thanks again for the advice
