Its not about taxes on their side.
Exports tend to be tax free to encourage trade.What government wants to make their countries products uncompetitive?
When these arrive in UK and indeed EU mainland, Import Duty and VAT (Purchase Tax) are due on cost of item + postage + postal insurance.
It's a rip off pure and simple.
