Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between a micro SIM and a Nano SIM?

 

The difference between a micro SIM and a nano-SIM is that a nano sim is approximately 15% thinner than a micro sim. It is also thinner than a mini-SIM which are older sim card that was often referred to as just ‘SIM cards’. 

I've lost my verification email, what should I do?

If you've closed the 'Verify Your Details' page then you can get in touch with us via email on support@o2startrader.co.uk and we'll send you a new one.

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.

Why aren't my activations showing up in my dashboard?

All activations will appear in your dashboard. However, there can sometimes be a delay, although this isn't usually anything longer than a few days. 

Please note, although your activations will be shown in your account, you won't be paid for them until 2 months later, as we need to perform spam and fraud checks. For example, if one of your sims was activated on 1st January, you wouldn't be paid for this until March, on the 10th working day.
