How To Order Flowers At Costco
First of all, it’s important to know that you must be a Costco member in order to purchase flowers from Costco.com. Some online sources claim that non-members can order Costco flowers, but this is not true.
To order flowers from Costco online, follow these steps:

- When you find the flowers you’d like to order, click “add to cart” or “select options” and follow the prompts on the screen
- Select your delivery date when prompted
