Frequently asked questions

How do I register with Star Trader?

It’s free and easy for you to register with Star Trader, simply sign up here and follow the steps. You’ll need to let us know your name, email address, despatch address and bank details.

How long do my sims take to be delivered?

Your sims should be with you in less than 14 days.

If you've been waiting longer than this, please contact us and we'll look into it for you.

Please let us know your despatch address and the date that you placed the order.

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:

Review Period

1 Mid-January September-November
2 Mid-April December-February
3 Mid-July March-May
4 Mid-October June-August


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.

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.

Can I sign up multiple accounts?

No, you can only sign up to one Star Trader account. Your despatch address, email address, name and bank details must be linked to one account.

If you attempt to sign up to more than one account using the same details with another email address, you'll breach the conditions of our terms and conditions.

If we suspect you’ve opened or have attempted to open multiple accounts, we’ll have no option other than to suspend your original account and any other accounts we believe are afilliated with you.


Why haven’t I been paid?

In order to pay you, we need your bank details. To add them, you must log into your account and enter them within the dashboard section. If you don't provide us with your bank details, any unclaimed payments can be withheld after 90 days. 

And remember, we pay you for activations every 2 months. This mean's you'll be paid in March for January activations. 

If you're still experiencing problems with your payment, please let us know by sending an email to support@o2startrader.co.uk.
