    Up to you really, wont matter either way. Just bear in mind that when you are deleting or adding products to update the sitemap. no point using a sitemap if its full or 404 errors.

    My self, I'd include every page on my site. Apart from pages that i have blocked elsewhere, non-canonical pages, paginted page, sort pages etc.

    Also the max amount of urls in a sitemap is 50k, or 10mb is size. If over that you need to use sitemap indexes and multiple sitemaps
