Frequently asked questions

Do I have to buy sims from O2?

No, you can order sims free of charge on your Star Trader account.

What is a standard sim?

Standard sims fit regular phones, excluding some smartphones and the iPhone 5 and 6.

When will I know how many activations I’ve received?

Your activations will update automatically within your account dashboard. To see them, just log into your account here: https://www.o2startrader.co.uk/login

Although your activations will show in your account, they aren't final figures. Once we receive notification of your activations, they're then checked for spam and fraud data to make sure they're legitimate before we pay you. As a result, you won't receive payment for your activations until 2 months has passed.

This is shown in the table below.

Can I use a micro SIM card in a standard slot?

In some instances, you can use a micro SIM card in a standard SIM card slot. Some SIMs come with an out plastic casing allowing them to fit in larger slots. The plastic can be removed for smaller SIM slots. 


How much can I earn?

You'll earn £5 for every activated sim that's topped up for the first time with £10 or more. 

Work your way through the trader tiers and you'll be able to order more sims, which means you'll have the opportunity to earn more money.
