Frequently asked questions

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.

How much can I earn?

You'll earn £5 for every activated sim that's topped up for the first time with £10 or more. 

Work your way through the trader tiers and you'll be able to order more sims, which means you'll have the opportunity to earn more money.

When will I know how many activations I’ve received?

Your activations will update automatically within your account dashboard. To see them, just log into your account here: https://www.o2startrader.co.uk/login

Although your activations will show in your account, they aren't final figures. Once we receive notification of your activations, they're then checked for spam and fraud data to make sure they're legitimate before we pay you. As a result, you won't receive payment for your activations until 2 months has passed.

This is shown in the table below.

Why haven’t I been paid?

In order to pay you, we need your bank details. To add them, you must log into your account and enter them within the dashboard section. If you don't provide us with your bank details, any unclaimed payments can be withheld after 90 days. 

And remember, we pay you for activations every 2 months. This mean's you'll be paid in March for January activations. 

If you're still experiencing problems with your payment, please let us know by sending an email to support@o2startrader.co.uk.
