Against policy?

i have a question.  If one has a site that has woo commerce on it and its sole purpose is to redirect you to another page where you can actually order, is this against policy for shopping ads? Ex. Landing page in pla shows item and buy now button, click buy now and you're redirected to the another site where you can ad to your cart.  The page it redirects to is a replicated site owned by separate entity that is based on commission based relationship.

 

Thanks again for your help.

yes -- that is against policy.

commission-based supply-chains are expressly forbidden by
the policies and are grounds for a (permanent) suspension
from the program, at any time.

 

product-listing-ads require accurate inventory availability information.

 

of course, google is the final arbiter of all their policies.
