How do I sign up for a membership at a warehouse?

Signing up

For those who’d rather sign up in person, stop by the membership counter at your local warehouse and fill out a membership application form.

In order to sign up for a Gold Star membership, we need to confirm your age and address, so bring photo identification that shows your current residential address and date of birth. Once that’s done, we’ll process your application, take your photo and print your card so you’re ready to start shopping!

If you’re specifically after a Business membership, bring your ABN certificate or a business license, identification that shows you’re the owner or operator of the business, and photo identification with your address and date of birth.

If you also want to sign up for the secondary household card, get your nominee to bring their photo identification—you can choose your spouse, domestic partner or immediate family member over the age of 18 and living at the same residential address.

An online account isn’t created automatically when you sign up at a warehouse. You can use your membership card number to register for your online account after you’ve signed up and collected your card from the warehouse.

Gold Star membership

A Costco Gold Star membership is $60 per year and anyone over the age of 18 can join. To sign up at your local warehouse, you need to bring photo identification that shows your current residential address to the membership counter. Once you’ve completed the application form, we’ll take your photo and print your card—then you’re ready to shop!

Please visit our Gold Star membership sign-up page if you want to sign up online.

 

As Costco sells liquor in Australia, you must be over 18 to become a member.

Business membership

A Costco Business membership is only $55 per year and it allows you to purchase products for your business, for resale or for personal use. If you want your employees to shop at Costco too, you will need to add them to your Business membership. Keep in mind that a $55 fee per year applies to each employee added to your membership.

A useful perk of the Business membership is that you’re entitled to make two separate transactions at the register: one for business to produce a tax receipt and one for your personal shopping.

When signing up for a Business membership at the warehouse, you’ll need to stop by the membership counter with photo identification that shows your current residential address. You’ll also need your ABN certificate, or a business license, and ID that shows you’re the owner or operator of the business. Once you’ve filled out the application form, we’ll take your photograph and print your card.
