Do I have to buy sims from O2?

No, you can order your sims from your Star Trader account free of charge.

How much can I earn?

You'll earn £5 for every Pay as you Go sim ordered through Star Trader that gets activated (Applies to activations received from 1st January 2015 onwards; Activations received prior to 1st January 2015 will receive £3 commission). There's no maximum amount that you can earn.

You can now also earn £5 for every Mobile Broadband sim that gets topped-up with £10 or more.

 


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.
