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.

What is a combi sim?

Micro SIM cards come attached within a standard sim card size, which can then be removed. It is also known as a combi sim as when in its larger casing can be used for both. They fit in any phone except iPhone 5 & 6.

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:

 

Quarterly Reviews

Quarterly Check Date

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.

 

Tier

Activation rate

(move down if below)

Activation rate

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.
