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.

What is Star Trader?

Star Trader is a programme that allows you earn money with O2. You can:

  • Order up to 500 Pay as you Go sims and 50 Mobile Broadband sims at once (depending on your tier).
  • Distribute them to your customers.
  • You'll get paid £5 for every sim activated (topped up for the first time) from 1st January 2015 onwards and every £5 for every Mobile Broadband sim that is topped-up with £10 or more. (Activations received prior to 1st January 2015 will receive £3 commission).

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

All activations will appear in your dashboard, but there’s occasionally a delay which could be up to a few days.

 

Please note, activations will appear on your dashboard 2 months after your sims have been activated.

 

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.


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.
