Variants won't stay in correct order

So this has been an ongoing problem for me.

My Shopify (Minimal theme) is integrating with Retail Express (

I create a product in Retail Express, and it sends through to Shopify (so Retail Express is handling inventory and order fulfillment).

I log in to Shopify and add a picture and description, tags etc. I drag-n-drop the variants into the correct order. Save everything, check the website. Product is coming up perfectly. 

A day or week later, all variants have defaulted back to the original (alphabetical) order.

I often use CSV files when creating or updating products in Retail Express, so I was wondering if that was affecting it.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why it may be doing this - and more importantly, how to stop it?

If the products are synced with Retail Express then it is possible that  that sync is updating the variant sequence in Shopify.
