Our payments system will have 15 mins of downtime this Sunday. What would you do with 15 mins?

For two windows of 15 mins between 3:30PM and 4:30PM this coming Sunday 15th March, we’re doing some scheduled testing and upgrades of our payments system.

During those times you WON’T be able to:

  • spend more than $250 across all your transactions
  • do more than 4 transactions in total
  • do card transactions POS (instore) that require a PIN (so need to be under $100)
  • activate or lock your card in the Xinja app
  • change your PIN
  • add or remove Google Pay or Apple Pay from the Xinja app
  • withdraw cash from ATMs

We’re really sorry about these limitations, but it got us thinking, what would you do with 15 minutes of downtime?If someone gave you 15 minutes when you could do anything, what would it be (apart from the obvious :wink:)?

Please give us your ideas, and the best one gets a prize and 15 minutes of fame :slightly_smiling_face:

I write in my spare time, so an extra 15mins could mean another 500 words in my latest draft. :smiley:

I would count to 900 seconds, by then 15 minutes would have passed.

:biking_man: Cycle around the park


I would scream for approximately 5 minutes for no reason, laughter for another 3 and a half minutes, a minute and a half of staring at the roof, 4 minutes of waving at cars and trying to get people to honk their horns at me, 59 seconds running around the servo getting whatever I want and acting like it’s a minute shopping frenzy and for the last second I will aim to pay for my buying frenzy as Xinja comes back online #XinjaDowntime


It’s 10 laps of the grand prix but sadly not as been called off :slightly_frowning_face:

But how pin ? In card form online on pin right?

Search the Car boot and Garage for those half used toilet paper rolls from past camping trips


Hiya @Cdarke - are you asking about the “change pin” option? Usually this is available by logging into the app and selecting:

  1. view account
  2. card (centre top)
  3. change pin

Hope that helps!

15 minutes, huh?

99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer. Take one down, pass it around. 98 bottles of beer on the wall.
