Currently, Store Manager only maps suppliers' CSV files by column order number/letter.
Store Manager must include an important feature for importing by CSV and that is Mapping by column name.

Store manager’s main feature is to automatically import hundreds or thousands of products via CSV, XML etc and if a supplier moves a column it will cause big problems.
I have had 3 instances where suppliers have added columns or moved columns and that has caused massive problems on my website, quantities were incorrect, prices were incorrect etc and in turn, cost the company money to have a tech engineer fix the issue with the column order change.

So what I purpose is to please add mapping by column name as well as how you have it now mapping by column order letter/number. It gives us store manager subscribers the option to map by column name or by column order.
The benefits of Mapping by column name are simple, regardless if a supplier moves columns, adds columns that affect the order in the CSV it won’t affect the configuration as the file will be mapped by “column name” and not by the order of the column, i.e by letter/number.
