Why is it so many British sellers have problems with shipping overseas?

 

It is enough to take a look at eBay, even many Americans ship worldwide, but the greatest part of sellers within the UK prefer collection or write >UK only<. Only today I couldn't bid properly on an auction for a certain item because the seller, to whom I had sent a link to a cheap courier asking for his availability to use it, didn't reply in time to allow me to choose whether bidding or not - and didn't reply at all, the bid having closed. It's difficult to buy in the UK from private sellers, and I'd like to understand why.
