one possibility for product-listing-ads (shopping-campaigns)
is to have only one item displayed on the page, with only one,
single, prominent, price displayed -- the map-price; with its
matching add-to-cart price, that is submitted to google.

then, during the normal checkout-flow, allow the
application of a visible "discount" to the price --
resulting in a non-map-price (only) at checkout.

however, the discounted (non-map) price can never be displayed on
the website landing-pages or submitted to google; which generally is
not an ideal alternative for most map-based pricing implementations --

e.g. crossed-out, small-font, or pop-up, prices would not be allowed.

of course, google is the final arbiter of all rules and policies --
google may disapprove an item or (permanently) suspended
a website, account, or merchant, at any time.

the price submitted to google, the single price displayed
prominently on the link landing-page for the item, and
the add-to-cart price, must all match exactly, at all times,
for all users, regardless of where a user might be located.

generally, map-based pricing models are not allowed.

there are many other campaign-types and ad-formats
that generally do not have the exact same restrictions
as shopping-campaigns (product-listing-ads) --

Hi,
In my opinion this has happened just because you are not showing the actual price as soon as a visitor landed on your website.

Why don't you use this format to show the price-

because generally map-based pricing models
restrict what a merchant is allowed to display --
having nothing to do with google.

also, google recommends only one price on the landing-page.
