Hi Dondo,


Welcome to AdWords Community.


Affiliate is a sensitive topic with AdWords. Though, there's no ban on advertising affiliate products/services with AdWords specifically, yet such advertisers are very much prone to violate some policies or the other. 


It's better to read the policies before you start promoting. Here are some of the policies you should read specifically -

I see,I am curious about this rule,

Using the Google Network to gain an unfair traffic advantage over other participants in the auction
Examples: Affiliates that advertise on AdWords against the applicable affiliate program rules, promoting the same or similar content from multiple accounts on the same or similar queries

What if the advertiser allows affiliate to advertise on adwords while they are also advertising using Adwords?
