  • you might not be able to get your money back if Unauthorised Transactions or mistaken transactions occur. The more you load onto your Card the more you could lose due to an Unauthorised Transaction. Refer to section 22 for further information about when you may be held liable for unauthorised use of the Card;
  • due to equipment errors, malfunctions or equipment being used incorrectly, the same transaction may be processed more than once or transactions may not be processed at all.

  • merchants and ATM operators (domestic and international) may charge fees for using the Card at their facilities and these fees may increase;
  • If the electronic network enabling the use of a Card is unavailable, you may not be able to perform transactions or get information using the Card;
  • merchants may, at their discretion, refuse to accept the Card as a method of payment. You should always check with the merchant that it will accept the Card before purchasing any goods or services;
  • in some circumstances (for example, where a transaction is processed in an offline environment or where you incur a fee or charge), the Available Balance remaining on your Card may become negative. You will be liable for any Negative Balance that may result and any reasonable costs we may incur in recovering the amount of the Negative Balance from you. Refer to section 14 for further information about Negative Balances; and
  • The Financial Claims Scheme does not apply in relation to your Card or your Available Balance.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE FINANCIAL CLAIMS SCHEME

The Financial Claims Scheme (“FCS”) is a scheme administered by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (“APRA”) to protect depositors from potential loss due to the failure of institutions. It provides depositors with a guaranteed protection, up to a cap. As at the date of this PDS, the FCS applies to deposits only. It does not extend to prepaid card products (including the Card or any Available Balance held on the Card).

If Indue fails:

  • any Available Balance held on your Card will not be protected by the FCS; and
  • you may lose all or part of your Available Balance.

The risks associated with the Card may therefore be increased when you load large amounts of money onto the Card.

For more information on the FCS, refer to: https://www.fcs.gov.au/

7) YOUR AVAILABLE BALANCE IS NOT A BANK DEPOSIT

The Card is not a debit card or credit card and the Available Balance on the Card is not a bank deposit. Indue will hold funds that are stored on your Card in various accounts that it owns and controls. In no circumstance will you earn interest on any Available Balance that is stored on your Card.

8) TAX LIABILITY

We have not taken into account your individual circumstances or needs and you should get
your own independent tax advice in relation to the impact your use of the Card may have on your personal tax liability.

9) OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

There are fees and charges associated with the use of your Card. Please refer to section 17 for further information about fees.

The Card cannot be used to make or complete a transaction that exceeds the Available Balance on your Card from time to time.

The Card cannot be used to make or complete a transaction that exceeds the Daily Spend Limit.

Xinja on 1800 XINJAS (1800 946 527) or email [email protected]

12) ACTIVATING THE CARD

You are required to activate your Card before being able to make payments with it. Once you have received your Card you are able to activate it by downloading the Xinja mobile application (App) as instructed by Xinja and following the prompts.

13) LOADING VALUE TO YOUR CARD (OR ‘TOPPING UP’) AND CARD LIMITS

The Card is reloadable which means you may load value onto the Card as often as you like so long as:

  • the total value on your Card at any one time does not exceed the Card Limit;
  • the load value transaction does not exceed the Maximum Load Limit (if set below the Card Limit)
  • the load value transaction exceeds the Minimum Load Limit
  • the Expiry Date has not been reached; and
  • your Card has not been cancelled (either by you, Xinja or Indue).

As at the date of this PDS, a summary of the load and spend limits that apply to the Card is as follows:

LIMIT
Card Limit: the maximum value that may be stored on a Card at any one time $999
Maximum Load Limit: the maximum amount that can loaded onto a Card in a single load (as long as it does not cause the Available Balance to exceed the Card Limit) If the Maximum Load Limit is an amount less than the Card Limit it will either be displayed in the Xinja App or Xinja will notify you via email of the revised amount
Minimum Load Limit: the minimum amount that may be loaded onto a Card in a single load $20 when you load using Visa or Mastercard Debit Card

No minimum limit when you load using electronic funds transfer

Daily ATM Limit: the maximum value that may be withdrawn from an ATM in any one day $500
Daily Spend Limit: the maximum that may be spent at a point of sale terminal in any one day $999

 

Indue and Xinja reserve the right to set other transaction velocity limits as required.

You are able to load funds onto your Card by using electronic funds transfer (also known as Pay Anyone) through your Australian financial institution, by using the BSB and account number that appears on the reverse side of your Card and the exact name in which you activated your Card. It can take up to 3 Business Days for your funds to be made available for use.

You are also able to load funds onto your Card by using a Visa or Mastercard Debit Card via the Xinja App. If available you may also be able to load value onto your card by drawing funds from an Australian bank account through an automatic top-up function. Further information about the various ways your Card may be loaded is set out below.

Please note: Certain load methods described in this PDS may not be available at all times and we may in the future make additional load methods available. If we do, we will let you know about any specific terms and conditions applicable to that load method. You can check what methods are available to you by reviewing the FAQ section of the Xinja App .

Depending on the load method you use, a Minimum Load Value may apply. As at the date of this PDS the Minimum Load Value is $20. Any attempt to load value below the Minimum Load Value will be rejected.

The total value that may be loaded onto your Card at any one time cannot exceed the Card Limit, Maximum Load Limit, or any other limit that we may impose from time to time. Any attempted load is above the Maximum Load Limit or would take the Available Balance over the Card Limit will be rejected in full. To avoid this, Xinja recommends that you regularly check your balance in the Xinja App.

Auto Top-ups

If available, you may be able to arrange for us to automatically deduct value from your bank account to load onto your Card when your Available Balance drops to a certain level. This will require you to complete a Direct Debit Request and agree to a Direct Debit Request Service Agreement. The Direct Debit Request Service Agreement will contain the terms applicable to your use of Auto Top-Up.

If and when available, the Auto Top-Ups will be triggered by a Trigger Amount and a Top-Up Amount that you choose. If the Available Balance on your Card falls below the Trigger Amount, we will automatically arrange to load the Top-up Amount to your Card by debiting this amount from the bank account you have nominated.

We may set minimum and maximum amounts that you can choose for your Trigger Amount and Top-Up Amount. If so, we will let you know what they are when you set up your Auto Top-Up arrangement in the Xinja App.

You will be able to cancel your Auto Top-Up arrangement at any time through the Xinja App.

Top-up Via Debit Card

You are also able to load value onto your Card using funds from a Mastercard or Visa Debit Card. It is important to note that when you use your Visa or Mastercard Debit Card to load your Xinja Card, you are making a payment from your Debit Card to a third party service provider, eWAY, and not to Indue. eWAY has been engaged by Xinja directly to provide this service and no conduct or representations made by eWAY are binding upon Indue. Indue is not responsible for your funds until they are loaded onto your Card. In the event you have attempted to load value onto your Card using your Mastercard or Visa Debit Card and they are not appearing on your Available Balance, you should immediately contact Xinja.

If this functionality is available and you wish to load value onto your Card using funds from a Mastercard or Visa Debit Card, login to the Xina App and follow the prompts to Top Up.

After you successfully make a load request this way your funds will ordinarily be immediately added to your Available Balance.

14) USING THE CARD

The Card allows cash withdrawals at ATMs and can be used anywhere Visa prepaid cards are accepted, including online purchase transactions up to the daily limits. The maximum you can withdraw from an ATM per day is limited to the Daily ATM limit. The maximum you can spend per day at a point of sale terminal is limited to the Daily Spend Limit.

When using your Card (either through inserting or swiping), press the “Credit” or “CR” button on the relevant terminal and follow the prompts to enter your PIN. If you press the “Savings” or “SAV” or “CHQ” or “Cheque” button, the transaction may be declined.

Your Card is payWave enabled so you may use it for contactless transactions under $100 without using your PIN at any terminal that is payWave enabled. Simply place your Card near or on the card reader. Before authorising a payWave transaction, you must check that the correct amount is displayed on the terminal.

When an Authorised Transaction takes place using your Card, we will deduct the value of the Authorised Transaction from the Available Balance.

You are responsible for all transactions that arise from the use of your Card, unless this PDS says otherwise.

You must not attempt to use your Card to make a transaction that exceeds the Available Balance.

In some circumstances (for example, where a transaction is processed in an offline environment or where you incur a fee or charge), your Available Balance can become negative. If you make or attempt to make a transaction that exceeds the Available Balance, you will be liable for any Negative Balance that may result and any reasonable costs we may incur in recovering the amount of the Negative Balance from you. If your Card has a Negative Balance, when value is next loaded onto your Card, we will first apply that loaded value to recover the Negative Balance from you.

You cannot stop payment on any transaction after it has been completed.

Merchants and financial institutions can impose conditions on how their payment facilities are used, including imposing limits or not allowing split payments. Merchants and financial institutions may also impose a fee or surcharge for using their payment facilities (including an ATM owner fee displayed on the ATM at the time of the transaction). These type of fees fall outside our control and are not charged by Indue or Xinja. We accept no responsibility for these fees.

Sometimes, there may be circumstances beyond the control of Indue that prevents a transaction being processed. For example, a transaction may not process if there are problems with the communications network to which a terminal connects. We are not liable in any way when authorisation is declined for any particular transaction regardless of the reason.

The Card must not be used for illegal purposes, including the purchase of goods or services deemed illegal by any Australian law. You must not resell your Card to any other third party.

15) USING YOUR CARD OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA

All transactions conducted in a currency other than Australian dollars will be converted into Australian dollars. Transactions will either be converted directly into Australian dollars or will be first converted from the currency in which the transaction was made into US dollars and then converted to Australian dollars by Visa. The conversion rate used is either:

  • a rate selected by Visa from a range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable processing date, which may vary from the rate Visa receives; or
  • the government-mandated rate (in certain countries) in effect for the applicable processing date.

16) VERIFIED BY VISA

Your Card has been automatically enrolled with Verified by Visa. Verified by Visa is a program designed to authenticate online transactions. This means that when you use your Card online to make a purchase at a Verified by Visa Participating Merchant, your identity may need to be validated if the relevant transaction is deemed to be high risk.

A transaction may be deemed high risk if it is for a high value or an irregular purchase based on your previous Card transaction history.

In order to validate your identity, you will be asked to answer personal questions which we will match against your personal information that we have obtained from you.

If you are unable to validate your identity after three attempts, you will be unable to complete the transaction and your Card will be temporarily suspended from use with all Verified by Visa Participating Merchants. To have your Card manually un-suspended , you may contact Xinja on 1800 XINJAS (1800 946527)

If, after your Card has been un-suspended, you attempt an online transaction with a Verified by Visa Participating Merchant and again you are unable to validate your identity after three attempts, your Card will be indefinitely suspended from use with all Verified by Visa Participating Merchants. To have your Card unsuspended, you must contact Indue.

Online transactions that are attempted with Verified by Visa Participating Merchants and which are deemed to be very high risk transactions will be automatically declined without asking you to validate your identity. For assistance in these circumstances, contact Xinja.

Verified by Visa has certain browser requirements that will change from time to time and can be seen at www.visa.com.

17) FEES AND CHARGES

The following fees and charges apply to your use of the Card. All fees and charges that are set out in this section 17 are inclusive of GST. You agree to pay to Indue all fees and charges that are set out in this PDS. Indue will deduct these fees and charges from your Card.

If you consider that Indue has incorrectly charged you a fee or charge, you may dispute this by contacting either Indue or Xinja in accordance with section 24 below. Any incorrectly charged fee or charge will be reversed by Indue. Indue may choose to waive or reduce any of the fees set out below.

FEES
Card Replacement Fee: payable and deducted from your Available Balance if your Card is lost, stolen or damaged and a replacement card is issued to you (refer to section 18 below) Two (2) free cards per year after that $10 per replacement card
Card Renewal Fee No charge
Disputed Transaction Fee: payable and deducted from your Available Balance if we dispute a transaction at your request and it is found to be a valid transaction (refer to section 24 below) $20 per disputed transaction found to be valid transaction.
Currency Conversion Fee: 3.5% of the total amount of your transaction will be deducted from your Card, when using your Card to make a purchase in a currency other than Australian dollars (including transactions that are processed by a card scheme or billed by the merchant outside of Australia (refer to section 15 above)) No Charge. All Currency Conversion Fees deducted from your Card at the time you make a transaction will be refunded by Xinja.

 

We may in the future introduce new fees. Please see the section 28 below on “Changes to this PDS” for how we will notify you if we do this.

18) WHAT TO DO IF YOUR CARD IS LOST OR STOLEN

If you think your Card may have been lost or stolen and you have access to the Xinja App, open the App, select the card icon in the bottom menu, and then slide to lock the card. This will lock the card immediately. If you do not have access to the App, contact Xinja immediately by calling 1800 XINJAS (1800 946 527) or +61 2 8598 8525 from overseas. If you find your Card you can unlock your Card at any time via the Xinja App. There are no fees associated with temporarily locking your Card.

If you have locked your card but are now certain it is lost or stolen, immediately notify Xinja by calling on one of the numbers above or via chat in the Xinja App. Once you have advised Xinja that your Card has been lost or stolen, they will immediately place a block on your card. This means you will not be able to use your Card to authorise any transactions or load value onto your card. Once a block has been placed on your card it cannot be reversed.

If your card has been confirmed lost or stolen , a replacement card will be issued to you and you will be charged a Card Replacement Fee. If a replacement card is reissued to you, your lost or stolen Card will be cancelled and we will transfer any Available Balance remaining on your lost or stolen Card (less the Card Replacement Fee) to your new card.

You must not use your Card while it is in a blocked or suspended state. In some circumstances your Card may be used to make payments where no electronic approvals are in place. If you use your Card when it is blocked or suspended, you will be liable for the value of the transaction.

Unreasonable delay in notifying Xinja or Indue that your Card has been lost or stolen may result in your being held liable for any unauthorised use of your Card.

If your Card is not lost or stolen but you would like to temporarily lock your card, you can do this by accessing the Xinja App and using the “lock card” feature, You can unlock your Card at any time via the Xinja App.

19) CARD RENEWAL, CANCELLATION AND EXPIRY

Card Renewal

Prior to the Expiry Date, Xinja may instruct Indue to issue you a new or replacement Card which will be posted to your address held by Xinja. In the event you are issued a new or replacement card, Indue will transfer the Available Balance on your existing Card to your new card at the time the new card is activated.

Card cancellation and suspension

Indue or Xinja, may at their discretion cancel or temporarily suspend your Card at any time. We may do this if:

  • your Card, Card Information or PIN has been, or Xinja or Indue reasonably suspect has been, compromised;

  • we reasonably believe that your use of your Card may cause us to breach a law;
  • we suspect your Card is being used for fraudulent or suspicious activities;

  • any other reason at our discretion.

Indue or Xinja will notify you if your Card has been suspended or cancelled.

You may cancel your Card at any time by contacting Xinja.

If your Card expires or is cancelled

On the Expiry Date or Cancellation Date, we will deactivate your Card. This means you’ll no longer be able to use it to access the Available Balance.

You must not use your Card after the Expiry Date or Cancellation Date. In some circumstances your Card may be used for purchases where no electronic approval is required. If you use your Card after the Expiry Date or Cancellation then you may be liable to Indue for the value of any transaction as well as any reasonable costs incurred by Indue in collecting the amount owing.

Available Balance on Cancellation or Expiry

If your Card is cancelled or expired and a new or replacement card is not issued to you, Xinja will arrange for any remaining Available Balance on your Card to be returned to you.

Unclaimed Money

If value still remains on your Card after 7 years from the Expiry Date or Cancellation Date, we may transfer the balance of the card to the Commonwealth Government as “unclaimed money”.

Before we transfer the balance to the Commonwealth Government as “unclaimed money”, we will make reasonable endeavours to contact you using your last-known contact details.

You have the right to claim your money that is held with the Commonwealth Government. Please refer to ASIC’s website at www.asic.gov.au for details.

20) MONITORING YOUR CARD FOR UNAUTHORISED TRANSACTIONS

You can check your Available Balance and your transaction history, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by logging into the Xinja App. We strongly recommend that you regularly review your transaction history so you can identify any Unauthorised Transactions as soon as possible.

You must immediately contact the Xinja if you believe there are Unauthorised Transactions in your transaction history, or if you identify any suspicious or fraudulent activity in relation to your Card. Any unreasonable delay in notifying us of any Unauthorised Transactions may result in you being responsible for the losses occurring as a result if the delay.

21) SECURITY OF PIN AND THE CARD

When you activate your Card, you need to select a four-digit PIN. If you forget your PIN or want to change it, you can change your PIN at any time by accessing the Xinja App and following the prompts. Any PIN you choose must always have four digits.

If you enter an incorrect PIN three times, we will temporarily suspend your Card for up to 24 hours.

You must keep your Card and PIN safe and secure. If you do not, you may be liable for any Unauthorised Transactions that occur through the use of your Card. Your liability for Unauthorised Transactions will be determined as described in section 22.

If at any time you believe that your PIN has been compromised and become known to someone else, you must immediately change your PIN to protect your Card from fraudulent or Unauthorised Transactions.

To protect yourself from fraudulent or Unauthorised Transactions, remember the following:

  • do not record your PIN on your Card or on anything with or near your Card;
  • do not tell anyone your PIN (including any family member or friend) and try to prevent anyone else from seeing your PIN;
  • we will never ask you for your PIN;
  • a merchant should never ask you to tell them your PIN;
  • try to prevent anyone else seeing you enter your PIN into a point of sale terminal or when using an ATM;
  • do not choose a PIN that is easily identified with you, e.g. your birth date, an alphabetical code which is a recognisable part of your name or your car registration;
  • do not choose a PIN that is merely a group of repeated numbers;
  • never lend your Card to anyone else;
  • never leave your Card unattended e.g. in your car or at work;
  • for security reasons, on the Expiry Date, destroy your Card by cutting it diagonally in half. Also make sure you cut the chip in half;
  • examine your Card activity to identify and report, as soon as possible, any instances of unauthorised use;
  • cover your hand when entering your PIN;
  • do not allow anyone to swipe, tap or insert your Card when it is not in full sight of you; and
  • maintain up-to-date anti-virus software and a firewall on your device.

22) YOUR LIABILITY

Unauthorised Transactions may occur on your Card and, in certain circumstances, you may be liable for these transactions. How we determine liability for Unauthorised Transactions is described below.

When you are not liable for Unauthorised Transactions

You are not liable for any Unauthorised Transactions:

  • before you have activated your Card;
  • after you have reported your Card lost or stolen;
  • if you did not contribute to the Unauthorised Transaction. We may determine that you contributed to an Unauthorised Transaction if you did not exercise vigilant care in keeping your Card or Card Information secure or if you unreasonably delayed reporting to us about the loss or theft of your Card, the compromise of your Card Information or of any Unauthorised Transactions you became aware of; or
  • if the Unauthorised Transaction was made using your Card information without use of your actual Card or PIN and you did not unreasonably delay reporting to us about the loss or theft of your Card, the compromise of your Card Information or of any Unauthorised Transactions you became aware of.

If we can prove on the balance of probability that you’ve contributed to the Unauthorised Transaction under this section, your liability will be the lesser of:

  • the amount of the actual loss, if that amount is less than the Available Balance stored on your Card at the time the loss occurred;
  • the actual loss at the time we are notified of the loss or theft of your Card; or
  • the Card Limit; or
  • the amount for which you would be held liable if the Visa scheme rules applied.

Where a PIN was required to perform an Unauthorised Transaction and it is unclear whether or not you have contributed to any loss caused by the Unauthorised Transaction, your liability will be the lesser of:

  • $150;
  • the actual loss if the loss is less than the Available Balance stored on your Card at the time the loss occurred; or
  • the actual loss at the time you notified us of the loss or theft of your Card; or
  • the amount for which you would be held liable if the Visa scheme rules applied.

In determining your liability under this section:

  • we will consider all evidence including all reasonable explanations for the Unauthorised Transaction;
  • the fact that a transaction was authorised with the correct PIN, while significant, is not conclusive evidence that you have contributed to the loss; and
  • the use or security of any information required to perform a transaction that you are not required to keep secret (for example, the number on the front of your Card or the Expiry Date) is not relevant to your liability.

23) VISA ZERO LIABILITY

In addition to the limits placed on your liability as described in section 22 above, Visa’s scheme rules provide that Indue and Xinja shall limit your liability to nil in the following circumstances:

  • your fraud or negligence has not contributed to any loss caused by unauthorised use of your Card; and
  • you have provided all reasonably requested documentation to Indue or Xinja, which may include provision of a statutory declaration and police report.

Where this Visa zero liability provision applies, Indue will endeavour to refund the amount of the unauthorised transactions within five (5) days, subject to:

  • you having provided all reasonably requested information to Indue or Xinja;
  • you are not otherwise in default or have breached the terms and conditions set out in this PDS; and
  • Indue has not reasonably determined that further investigation is necessary before refunding the amount of the unauthorised transactions based on:

a) the use of the Card;
b) the nature and circumstances surrounding the unauthorised transactions; or
c) any delay in notifying Indue or Xinja of the unauthorised transactions.

Any refund is conditional upon the final outcome of Indue’s investigation of the matter and may be withdrawn by Indue where it considers that this provision shall not apply as a result of those investigations.

24) DISPUTED TRANSACTIONS AND MISTAKEN PAYMENTS

If you believe a transaction is wrong or unauthorised or your transaction history contains any instances of unauthorised use or errors, you must immediately notify Xinja. Please have your Card and transaction details to hand.

Xinja and Indue have the ability to investigate any disputed transactions which occur on your Card. You may wish to dispute a transaction in circumstances where:

  • you do not recognise the transaction;
  • you did not authorise the transaction;
  • you did not receive the goods or services to which the transaction relates;
  • the transaction amount differs to the purchase amount; or
  • you believe a transaction has been duplicated; or
  • you did not receive the requested cash from an ATM (or you only received part of the cash requested).

The Visa scheme has a dispute resolution process that is contained in Visa’s operating rules. The process sets out specific circumstances and timeframes in which a member of the scheme (for example, Indue, a bank or another financial institution) can claim a refund in connection with a disputed transaction on a cardholder’s behalf. This right is referred to as a “chargeback right”.

Accordingly, Indue’s ability to investigate a disputed transaction on your behalf is limited to the time frames imposed pursuant to the Visa scheme rules. The time frames vary between 75 days and 120 days so it is important that you notify Indue or Xinja as soon as you become aware of a disputed transaction.

Typically, Indue will be able to chargeback a transaction where a transaction occurred offline (for example, a fallback transaction) and the relevant transaction is over the Floor Limit.

If it is found that an error was made or that you are not liable for the transaction, then Indue or Xinja will make the appropriate adjustments to your Card and will advise you in writing of the amount of the adjustment.

If Indue has investigated a disputed transaction at your request and it is found that the transaction was valid, you will be held liable for the transaction and will be charged a Disputed Transaction Fee (refer to section 17).

Neither Xinja or Indue are responsible in the event that you have a dispute regarding the goods or services purchased with your Card. In the first instance, you should contact the merchant directly. If you cannot resolve the dispute with the merchant, you should contact Xinja who has the ability in certain circumstances to investigate disputed transactions on your behalf.

It is possible that someone else might make a mistake when they do an online funds transfer. As a result, funds may be mistakenly loaded to your Card, instead of being paid to where the mistaken payer intended. If this happens, and if your Available Balance is sufficient to cover the amount of the mistaken payment, we may automatically deduct the amount of the mistaken payment from your Available Balance so that we can return the amount to the mistaken payer’s financial institution. We will do this only if we are satisfied that a mistaken internet payment has occurred and only if the mistaken payer reports the mistake within 10 business days of making the payment.

If the mistaken payer reports the mistake between 10 business days and 7 months after making the payment, we may deduct the amount from your Available Balance only after we notify you and give you a chance to establish that you are entitled to the amount. In this situation, we may freeze your funds for up to 10 business days (while we give you the chance to establish your entitlement) before we deduct the amount.
