How to move up a tier

Going for gold? Check out our handy hints on how to move up the trader tiers.

No matter whether you’re a Bronze, Silver, or Gold trader, there’s always room to move up a tier with the chance to earn some extra cash. If you're a Platinum trader, your focus will be on maintaining your activation rate and staying on the top tier. 

We’re all about activations here, and they are the secret to soaring through the tiers. Each tier has its own earning potential and activation rate goal. Activation rates are reviewed every three months in January, April, July and October. If you’ve reached the activation rate for the next tier over the last quarter, you’ll be upgraded.

Every time one of your sims is activated, we’ll pay you £5. Sims are considered activated when they have had an initial top-up of £10 or more. 

How to move up

Keep it personal

No one likes a pushy salesperson. Be friendly yet informative with your customers, and they are more likely to take your advice on board as to what sim is best for them. More happy customers = more activations.

Perk it up

Priority is our way of saying thank-you to our customers, and a great perk to shout about when distributing your sims. Let your customers know that with Priority, they can receive a variety of special offers from free coffee to early access gig tickets, and those activations will come rolling in.

Don’t over-order

Remember, activation rates are key to staying in your tier. If you order too many sims and a lot of them remain unactivated, this can negatively affect your activation rate.

Bronze tier

Everyone starts as a Bronze trader and you can order 20 sims a month in this tier.

All you need to do to bump up to the Silver tier is have an activation rate of above 10%. That’s just three sims from your monthly allowance – easy peasy.

If your activation rate is 10% or lower, you'll stay on the Bronze tier until next time.

Silver tier

The jump from Bronze to Silver tier is a biggie in terms of sim allowance; traders with Silver Status can order 125 sims a month.

To stay on this tier, you'll need to maintain an activation rate of at least 10%. If your activations drop lower than this, you'll be downgraded back to Bronze.

Go above 15% and you'll be upgraded to Gold. 

Gold tier

As a Gold trader, your earning potential is £2500 a month, depending on whether all of your sims are activated.

To stay on this tier, you'll need to maintain an activation rate of at least 15%. Go below 15% and you're back to Silver. 

If your activation rate is higher than 25%, you'll be upgraded to the Platinum tier.

Platinum tier

The top tier. Platinum traders need to maintain an activation rate of 25% or above to stay on this tier and can order 550 sims a month.

Platinum traders can earn up to £2750. That’s a great way to earn some extra cash.
