I want to learn about 1 advanced services costco is using. And I am considering becoming a merchant (not of costco).

I signed up for costco membership in person at the costco store giving my united states state id.
I thought costco stored information by recording my state id number.

But when I used my costco membership number to sign up for costco.com online I was asked questions about my credit report.  
Where were you living in 1990?
a b c d choices.

In this example I am the consumer.
But I would like to be the merchant using customer state id.
Do you have examples of websites offering this service?
