Frequently asked questions

Do I need to sign for my sims?

If you have ordered 20 sims or less, we’ll deliver them in a parcel small enough to fit through your letter box. For larger orders, the parcel will be too big to fit through your letterbox, so they must be signed for upon delivery.

If you’re not in when your sims are delivered, they’ll be sent back to the nearest depot for collection. You’ll receive a note letting you know where they are and asking you to collect them. If you don’t pick up your sims after 21 days, they’ll be sent back to us.

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.

What is an activation?

This is when a sim is topped up for the first time with £10 or more.

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.
