Frequently asked questions

What is an activation?

This is when a sim is topped up for the first time with £10 or more.

How do Affiliate Activations work?

It’s a great way to boost your bank account. We’ll give you a personalised banner to put on your website, which will allow your customers to order their own O2 sims. 

The banner will have a unique URL, which we can track to make sure you’re paid for activations of the sims that have been ordered from your banner. It’s simple. We do the hard work for you. To request your banner, get in touch with the Star Trader team.

Can I distribute my sims to distributors or other companies?

We’d advise that you distribute your sims directly to your customers, as this is a much safer way of knowing where your sims are going.

You may be approached by some organisations requesting a high volume of sims or offering to distribute your sims for you. You must not supply sims to these companies, as they may use your sim cards to send targeted, unwanted messages to customers.

This breaches our terms and conditions.

If we suspect your sims are responsible for sending unwanted text messages or we believe you're supplying sims to another company, we’ll suspend your account with immediate effect and you won’t receive any commission for the affected sims, or any others during your suspension period.

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. 


Is this scheme supported by O2?

Yes, O2 have created this programme, so you can order sims directly from us. We’ll also pay you directly.

Our terms and conditions are also featured on the O2 website:
