Biz with importers

Is anyone worked with large importers of electronics and computers,
which sell via third-party on-line stores?

- What average man-hours you spent into integrating with the
importer's backend?
- Are they capable of providing order status acknowledgment (like:
awaiting payment, order shipped, order problem, etc.) and updating
order status in your automatic system?
- What minimal/average/maximum discounts do they offer?
- What was your ROI? (or the time to bankruptcy ;)

All stories are very welcome.

I meant not discount, but what percent (%) importers pay from "total" sales..
