not necessarily; if the inventory items are part of a marketplace
site (e.g. etsy, ebay, etc.) that is already submitting seller-items
via the merchant-center then, there is no need for a website.

in those cases, the marketplace must
submit all merchant inventory items.

otherwise, yes -- an owned website is required.

 

as an aside, the merchant-center is not for selling items --

the merchant-center is used to submit on-hand inventory data

for use as paid advertising and listed as product-listing-ads;

google-shopping is a highly competitive advertising auction.
