If you then move to CH from an EU country (for now that includes the UK!), it feels like an online shopping prison or some sort of pre-1980s blackhole of ordering. Suddenly many companies from DE who ship so easily to UK, NL, wherever in the EU and they might not sell at all to CH, etc.,. Just a fact of life....
Back when the European (Economic) Community was established, one of the critical goals was to enable the free movement of goods and services. And thus was born the Single Market.

Switzerland elected to not join the EEC, so the old cross-border ways still apply. Much the same as with, say, goods being shipped between Asia or the USA and any member of the European Union.

To that extent your posting boils down to a single request: Switzerland should join the EU.
