What is Star Trader?

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

  • Order between 20 and 550 sims a month (depending on your tier).
  • Distribute them to your customers.
  • You'll get paid £5 for every activated sim that's been topped up for the first time with £10 or more.

Is this scheme supported by O2?

Yes, O2 have created this programme, so you can order sims directly from us. We’ll also pay you directly.

How do I get o2 bolt ons?

To get basic bolt ons for your device, you can go to My o2 on the o2 website, call 2202 free from an o2 phone, or you can text BASICS to 21300 free of charge.

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.

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.
