Costco launches transactional website for UK customers

Wholesaler Costco has launched its ecommerce site within the UK and is open to both members and non-members.

The website, which launched two weeks ago, complements the retailer's 22 warehouses across the UK by offering a wider range of products.

It also offers an expanded catalogue of the firm's "high ticket" products, including a 4.25ct diamond ring for £359,999, 13ft Spa for £10,999 and a home entertainment pod for £13,999.

Garth Morris,’s ecommerce director, said: “We’re very excited to launch and hope to give to our members an expanded selection of new items, adding further value to their membership. We aim to be complementary to the warehouses, a welcome addition, and while published prices are for members only, non-members can now join the treasure hunt by paying an additional 5% surcharge plus VAT at checkout.”

Unlike the retailer's warehouses, the new ecommerce site is open to the public and non-members are notified of an additional five per cent cost plus VAT, which is added to any final prices upon checkout. However, delivery from the site is free and offers online exclusive deals to its customers.
