The Schema WooCommerce extension provides integration between Schema Premium and WooCommerce plugin in terms of schema.org markup.
For better search engine exposure and gaining rich snippets in search results, a Product page must have a valid schema.org markup implementation.
What is schema.org Product markup?
The schema.org Product type is code (semantic vocabulary) that you put on your website to help the search engines return more informative results about your products and online store, including rich snippets.
WooCommerce already has Schema!
WooCommerce has its own schema markup for Product, but it gets broken sometimes.
This could be for different reasons, example of that would be Google changing the way markup works, or requiring a specific data to be included in markup.
The Woo Team are busy, the don’t pay attention to these type of changes since it’s not the core of their development, and we agree with them! They should focus on building great eCommerce plugin more than other things, and let us handle the schema structured data.

*Variable products are a product type in WooCommerce that lets you offer a set of variations on a product, with control over prices, stock, image and more for each variation. They can be used for a product like a shirt, where you can offer a large, medium and small and in different colors. **Google recommend you add new structured data markup with JSON-LD, separate from your HTML markup, especially if your product data contains variants. Added markup are distinct from any user-facing code, which makes it easier to maintain. Any structured data markup specifically designed for Google usage can be added without changing any of the visual elements of your site. Note that the code that generates your structured data needs to be kept in sync any changes to the user-facing elements on your site.
