It’s been a week for big name retailers reporting from the frontline of the digital revolution. In today’s Internet Retailing newsletter we report on Argos’s move towards digital commerce, Amazon’s move into art dealing, evidence from Debenhams of shopping moving online, fast growth at home and abroad from Asos, and eBay’s move to snap up 90-minute delivery company Shutl.

Today’s guest comment comes from Michael Patterson of Bazaarvoice, who considers ways of mobilising the all important advocate army.
