Inventories: Import and Export

BrandsDistribution.com is a famous drop-shipping supplier that lets you export export the inventory in a number of common formats including CSV. Their export format is tricky because it contains both MODEL and PRODUCT fields in the same table making it difficult to reconcile the records and to import them as market-place feeds for Amazon or for eBay for instance.
