1st STEP: Sign up with Planet Express and Get your US Address

Although Costco has warehouses in the US, Canada, and the United Kingdom, if you want to shop at the American online store, you need a US address where you receive the goods. We can provide you with a free address in California, or subscribe to our Premium Mail Box to get access to our address in Oregon so you can enjoy sales-tax-free shopping! Watch the following video or read our tutorial on How to get the US address.

Depending on the delivery method you choose, it takes a few days for the carrier to deliver the package to one of our warehouses. Once we receive it, we will send you a notification email.
