That's the trouble with internet shopping - you don't know where the business is based or where it pays its taxes. But if it keeps a few people in a job for some time then some tax is being paid at point of dispatch in the form of PAYE and a few people are not claiming state benefits for a period. Swings and roundabouts.
If the shops sold what you wanted when you wanted it and it was easy to find then there would be no call for Amazon and all it's online shopping family.
