    System Requirements

    Our goal at costco.ca is to create an on-line shopping experience that is exciting, easy, and secure, from the minute you go on-line at our site to the time you receive the order at your door. To ensure this, there are a couple of system-related issues we need to explain to make sure your computer and our computers work properly together.

    Browser Requirements

    Internet Explorer 4.0 or above, or Netscape 4.0 or above. To place orders on Costco.ca, you need a browser that supports Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption technology.  This is required to attempt to keep unauthorized parties from reading the transactional information you send us. If you need to upgrade your browser, links are provided to download free upgrades from either Microsoft or Netscape.
