Frequently asked questions

When will I be paid for my activations?

We'll pay you by bank transfer within 10 days after your monthly activations have been uploaded onto the site.

 

The payment will cover commission earned on activations 2 months before.

 

For example, if your sim was topped up on the 1st January, you’ll be paid for the top-up on the 10th working day in March. If you think you should have been paid more than you have been, it may be that we’ll pay you in the next month.

 

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

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 Star Trader terms and conditions and our Pay as you Go terms and conditions.

 

If we suspect that your sims are responsible for sending these text messages or supplying any 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.

Why do I need to give you my bank details?

We need your bank details so that we can pay you when your sims get topped up.

You won’t ever have to pay us anything and all payments are safe and secure.
