Simply because it requires that all stages are computerised and requires interoperation between card merchant system, order system and packing/despatch.
The larger retailers will have such a system. They receive an order, the card payment is taken automatically, the order is assigned a barcode number and then displayed on a screen at the warehouse. At the warehouse they collect an item, stick a barcode on it, scan it at the despatch machine. Then they call a courier and type in the reference in your order.
A complex system which you would buy off the shelf more than likely and one that is designed for orders in thousands, not the double figured FIC are probably used to.
