Smartcompany News and Analysis: ProBlogger Darren Rowse in spat with PayPal, The advice DJs didn’t get from online pioneers, Solar firm collapses, Meet our Small Biz Commissioners

The average retailer would fall over themselves to meet with Gabby Leibovich, the founder of Catch Of The Day – but not David Jones chief Paul Zahra, who knocked back an invite ahead of the release of his own online retail strategy.

Today we talk to Leibovich and Deals Direct’s Paul Greenberg about the message they would have given to Zahra. We also look at the collapse of another solar panel firm, ask whether a review of Customs has failed to consult industry and examine a spat between ProBlogger’s Darren Rowse and PayPal.

Plus in Entrepreneur Watch, James Thomson sees some signs of confidence from the mid market.
