It isn't an eBay thing, it is a seller thing.

The primary reason that the other items are not visible to buyers not in the UK is because the listing shows that the seller will only ship to the United Kingdom. As such if you are not in the UK when you click on 'Show seller's other items' you get nothing because there is nothing else available to you because you aren't in the UK. The same thing happens to me (in Canada) when a US seller only indicates that they ship to the States in the auction specification (they might say in the body text that they ship elsewhere but eBay is blind to that), I can't see their items when I search or try and show seller's other items.

The same problem arises if you are searching for a particular item. Unless a seller has listed International shipping, you will not be able to find an item they list if you are not located in the specified shipping zone. So people if you really want to sell your items and get the best price, always list International shipping.
