Victor, It comes down to choice – If you click on an ad on a website and as a result of making a purchase the advertiser gets a commission, that is not a crime. The relationship is not advertised, nor is thew commission amount.

The example you gave also falls withing the financial services industry.

Does it work the same way if a RE agent gives a list of three carpet cleaners, each of whom is happy to pay a spotters fee or commission? I think not. The consumer has the choice to use any or none of them. If they HAD to use one of them, it would be a different case.
