Frequently asked questions

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.

Do SIM cards fit all phones?

All SIM cards now come in one SIM card package, so you won’t have to buy an individual size. You may have to remove an outer frame of plastic to reduce the size depending on your device. 

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

You can retrieve your verification email by clicking 'Resend verification email' on the 'Verify Your Details' page and we'll send the email back over to you.

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.

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.


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.
