Frequently asked questions

Why aren't my activations showing up in my dashboard?

All activations will appear in your dashboard. However, there can sometimes be a delay, although this isn't usually anything longer than a few days. 

Please note, although your activations will be shown in your account, you won't be paid for them until 2 months later, as we need to perform spam and fraud checks. For example, if one of your sims was activated on 1st January, you wouldn't be paid for this until March, on the 10th working day.

Do SIM cards fit all phones?

All SIM cards now come in one SIM card package, so you won’t have to buy an individual size. You may have to remove an outer frame of plastic to reduce the size depending on your device. 

Can I distribute my sims on marketplaces like eBay?

The beauty of being a Star Trader is that you can work on your own terms, whenever and wherever you want. This extends to online marketplaces. 

Selling on eBay is a great tactic, as you have the opportunity to be seen by more potential customers. Remember, more activations = more commission. Order sims. Sell sims. Get paid.

Can I top-up sims before giving them to customers?

No, this breaches our terms and conditions.

Our customers must activate the sims themselves. If we suspect you’re topping up the sims yourself, 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.


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.
