It’s a very simple and straightforward process to getting started and owning a share of Costco. Our step by step guide below will show you just how easy.
1. Pick a share trading platform.
We’ve provided a selection below to help you choose (many come with an app that you can manage from your phone).
2. Open an account with your chosen trading platform.
As with any account you’l be required to identify yourself with some personal details to make sure you are who you say you are.
3. Add a payment method.
You’ll be securely transferring money to your share trading platform in order to buy the shares, so you’ll need to add a way to pay.
4. Search for the company you want to buy shares in.
Each share trading platform has a simple way to locate the company you’ve identified.
5. Buy the shares.
Make sure you check the share price of the company you’re investing in and how much you’re investing (and ensure you’re happy with both) before you click the ‘buy’ button.
And that’s it, you’re now a shareholder. Congratulations!
