Frequently asked questions

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.

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.

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.
