I am looking for a simple RDF representation of shopping events, that is a list of orders, each with:

  • Date of order
  • Object or service which was ordered
  • Shop where it was ordered
  • Price of the order

The GoodRelations ontology seems to be for shopping offerings but not for transactions that have actually taken place, is it?

Maybe model your own and use The Event Ontology. Perhaps you could still use certain properties from good relations to describe the item and price.
