Frequently asked questions

What is an activation?

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

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 terms and conditions.

If we suspect your sims are responsible for sending unwanted text messages or we believe you're supplying 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.

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.

How can I keep track of my activations?

Keeping track of your activations is easy. You can everything you need on your Star Trader dashboard.
