Form 1099-MISC Box 9 reports information rather than income. Basically, the company reported to the IRS that you purchased over a specific amount of their products for resale. This implies that you will report this activity on Schedule C as income/expenses from self-employment. When you enter Form 1099-MISC, leave Box 9 blank.
You do not have to report the product you purchased for resale, but if you sold those products you need to report that income on a Schedule C and take a deduction for the cost of what you sold.
