how to manage XML feed into table using SQL

Hi,

We have an ecommerce and email system. We can get a feed from our ecommerce system into our email system using XML which is like

<email>
justin@email.com
</email>
<purchase>
<item>
<name>
product
</name>
<price>
2.00
</price>
</item>
<purchase>

Obviously, customer can purchase 1 - infinity products.

I am thinking we can bring into a table like:
| email | product | price|
justin@email.com | item 1 | 2.00 |
justin@email.com | item 2 | 2.00 |
justin@email.com | item 3 | 2.00 |
joe@email.com | item 1 | 2.00 |

Is this the best way to manage this or can anyone suggest a better table?
