put you have more than one supplier and you want to:
1) Add the products by Supplier ONE
2) Just Add the products by Supplier TWO
3) By next imports, even if some products have the same reference (eg. Mpn/Product Code/Icecat Code)
you can choose to not add them from Supplier TWO, so you can just correctly modify the products of both suppliers...and add new products only, if found...
but currently you can't do that... when you IMPORT you can't identify products by "Reference AND Supplier", maybe you could just add a prefix to the reference for the 2nd Supplier, eg. Supplier2_ProductCode
but it causes issues when you go to search on Icecat... unless you create a kind of "editor" even in the Icecat plugin...and also, often merchants don't like duplicate products...
Hope this helps

Do you want to add the following option on mapping stage of Import ?
See screenshot -
when you just ADD new products, important is that you always write the correct Supplier name...and even if you identify by "Reference" only there are no problems...
the problem, instead, now is that when you want to MODIFY the products... the 2nd (or other suppliers) could have the same products on their list... and you DON'T want to modify them...because they belong to the 1st supplier (or other)...
hope all is clear

not only... even if you change idea and want to assign some products to another supplier... will be enough if you write the correct supplier name ;-)

So, you want to do mapping of suppliers with product duplicate validation for CSV file.
In this case we need to do import twice for 2 suppliers or 1 time for 1 supplier.
