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.

When will I be paid for my activations?

We'll pay you for activations earned 2 months prior. If we have your bank details, we'll send the money straight to your account on the 10th working day of the month.

If you believe you should've received a higher payment, it may be that we’ll pay you the remaining amount in the next month.

All the payments you receive are for sims that have been topped up in the previous 2 months.

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. 

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.
