When will I know how many activations I’ve received?

Your activations will update automatically within your account dashboard. To see them, just log into your account here: https://www.o2startrader.co.uk/login

Although your activations will show in your account, they aren't final figures. Once we receive notification of your activations, they're then checked for spam and fraud data to make sure they're legitimate before we pay you. As a result, you won't receive payment for your activations until 2 months has passed.

This is shown in the table below.

What is a standard sim?

Standard sims fit regular phones, excluding some smartphones and the iPhone 5 and 6.

What are the trader tiers?

There are four main Star Trader tiers. Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

As a new trader, you'll start on the Bronze tier and will move up and down tiers depending on your activation rate and number of activations you receive.

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

Your activation rate shows the percentage of your activated sims against the sims you order. You can find your activation rate on your dashboard.

Your account and tier status will be reviewed 4 times a year. To do this, we’ll take an average of your activation rate each month and will review it every 3 months:

Quarterly Reviews

Quarter 1: January, February, March

Quarter 2: April, May, June

Quarter 3: July, August, September

Quarter 4: October, November, December

If your average activation rate and activation volumes for that quarter fall above or below the following requirements, we’ll move you up or down tiers at the end of each quarter.

Tier

Activation rate

(move down if below)

Activation rate

(move up if above)

Bronze - 10%
Silver 10% 15%
Gold 15% 25%
Platinum 25% -

 

Please note, you cannot move up more than one trader tier at a time.

We’ll take a record of your activation rate on the last day of each month and carry out the tier upgrades and downgrades on the last day of each quarter.

If you join Star Trader after the first monthly activation rate is taken, we’ll review your tier status in the next quarter.


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.
