    Hi there. I am a Costco fan, but when I go to Colombia the access to costco.com is banned, somebody  knows what to do?

    I already tryed:

    1-  clear all cookies and cache from my laptop.

    2. Change ISP (Internet Service Provider)

    3. I try in different Pcs..

    But still this error show up

    This is a tough question. It can be from any number of reasons.

    Here is one possibility

    Colombia has "Price Smart".  Price Smart is just like Costco and those two entities share some kind of history.  Maybe that's why Costco website is completely blocked from Colombia.

    I don't know…

    According to your error message, your server does not have permission to access Costco website.  So, possibly, Costco blocked your server from accessing their website.  Maybe Colombia government put a block for some reason.

    Maybe Costco put a block on your area for some reason.

    Try public WIFI and other internet access.  Maybe you will see same permission error no matter where you go (inside Colombia).

    Maybe you live close to hackers and spammers that your server is blocked by Costco.

    So many possibilities.

    Good luck.

    I’m experiencing the same thing here in Taiwan. What I’m thinking is Costco has locations in Taiwan as well, but the price of products is typically 20~30% higher. I think Costco itself may have blocked the access to avoid price checking.

    Sorry to hear that.  My only guess is that your server's IP is blocked for some reason. 

    I can be wrong.

    Same for me here in Vietnam. Has anyone written to the contact page on the Costco site who can get on? They need to know about it. They are losing business

    Same thing from Haiti. I suspect this is a corporate decision. It would be nice to get their side of the story.

    It’s not uncommon, especially when it comes to access from outside of the country. Sometimes it’s legally required, e.g. copyright or distribution issues. The only workaround is using a VPN in the same region, but sometimes that’s even detected. Hope this information helps.
