Frequently asked questions

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 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.

What is an activation rate?

Your activation rate shows what percentage of your sims has become activated. The percentage is also based on the amount of sims you order. 

For example, if you ordered 10 sims and 2 of these was activated, your activation rate would be 20%.

You can find your activation rate on your dashboard. Your rate is likely to change when you place sim orders and when you receive activations.

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.
