I mean no disrespect, but if I sold mobile phones I wouldn't make it simple for people from Estonia etc to buy them without my being able to do thorough checking to detect fraud.

http://www.baltlantis.com/?id=27814

"Estonia has also received international recognition as a hotbed for bank fraud through the role of Estonians in major scams abroad. Earlier this year the U.S. and the U.K. witnessed the biggest credit card fraud operations in their respective histories; both were IT based attacks and both involved Estonians."

Not that I am suggesting that is what you would do, however your countrymens actions quite rightly make retailers more alert.

For UK delivery, the cheap royalmail special delivery will suffice as it is insured upto £500. For international they will have to use DHL or UPS which is a lot more expensive.

Perhaps email them for help?

Im sure that there are a lot more scammers in UK than in Estonia, dont believe everything you read. But thats beside the point.
Its just weird how Expansys, Amazon UK and others have good and simple way of placing international orders. And as for delivery rates, Exapansys delivery rates to anywhere in mainland Europe are about 4 times cheaper than those of Devicewires. Go figure...

Possibly. However, if the perpetrators are within the UK, detection and prosecution is fairly straightforward - UK card providors for example do not usually allow delivery to other than the cardholder address, postal diversions require ID, deliveries require signatures etc and it's easy to look up a number and make a phonecall to confirm the cardholder did actually order an item as there is no language barrier. With a 'cardholder not present' transaction it is easier to spot an issue ( such as incorrect address formatting) for an address / name style that you are used to dealing with and the risks outweigh the benefit / potential sales to start processing orders 'easily'.

If you offered iban transfer perhaps their attitude might change?
