Is it even possible for someone to write 2.4 million quality pages? That might be a red flag in and of itself.
The problem you describe CheeryFox is faced by all online stores, they all need the 'more' Google is looking for. You will want to avoid republishing the generic product description if your pages don't have more to offer else they'll linger somewhere around page 15 until they do.
More doesn't have to be content however.
- Cool comparison tools
- A new way of helping visitors get what they wanted
- Ease of use
Having something tangible that yields great user metrics can overcome generic descriptions to some extent but as you pointed out you will want to write your own sales points if at all possible. That has been widely known for a long time so you're on the right path.
Did you know? JJ McCarthy, former head of eBays partner network, once owned a company that did nothing but write unique product descriptions in bulk for online retailers before he joined eBay.
