Frequently asked questions

What is Star Trader?

Star Trader is a programme that allows you earn money with O2. You can:

  • Order between 20 and 550 sims a month (depending on your tier).
  • Distribute them to your customers.
  • You'll get paid £5 for every activated sim that's been topped up for the first time with £10 or more.

What are the trader tiers?

There are four main Star Trader tiers. Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

As a new trader, you'll start on the Bronze tier and will move up and down tiers depending on your activation rate and number of activations you receive.

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

Your activation rate shows the percentage of your activated sims against the sims you order. You can find your activation rate on your dashboard.

Your account and tier status will be reviewed 4 times a year. To do this, we’ll take an average of your activation rate each month and will review it every 3 months:

Quarterly Reviews

Quarter 1: January, February, March

Quarter 2: April, May, June

Quarter 3: July, August, September

Quarter 4: October, November, December

If your average activation rate and activation volumes for that quarter fall above or below the following requirements, we’ll move you up or down tiers at the end of each quarter.

Tier

Activation rate

(move down if below)

Activation rate

(move up if above)

Bronze - 10%
Silver 10% 15%
Gold 15% 25%
Platinum 25% -

 

Please note, you cannot move up more than one trader tier at a time.

We’ll take a record of your activation rate on the last day of each month and carry out the tier upgrades and downgrades on the last day of each quarter.

If you join Star Trader after the first monthly activation rate is taken, we’ll review your tier status in the next quarter.

Do I need to sign for my sims?

If you have ordered 20 sims or less, we’ll deliver them in a parcel small enough to fit through your letter box. For larger orders, the parcel will be too big to fit through your letterbox, so they must be signed for upon delivery.

If you’re not in when your sims are delivered, they’ll be sent back to the nearest depot for collection. You’ll receive a note letting you know where they are and asking you to collect them. If you don’t pick up your sims after 21 days, they’ll be sent back to us.

Can I re-activate my account?

Yes, please get in touch with us via email on support@o2startrader.co.uk and we’ll re-instate your account for you.

If your account has been suspended by us, re-instating your account is at our discretion.


I've forgotten my password, what should I do?

You can retrieve your password by going to the login section, then clicking the 'Forgotten Password' link and we'll email your old password to you.
