Hi, I have set up a per-authorized debit card payment ,however I paid the bill through on-line banking just now, the balance is still there without any changes. I want to know whether I will be charged again when the due date because I set up per-authorized payment?

Depends on how long before the due date you made the payment. Pre-auth banking payment requests get sent to the bank up to a week prior, to be processed on the due date. If the manual payment has not processed before the request is sent to the bank you may be double charged. Pre-auth payments go through almost immediately, so as long as the manual payment posts before the due date there should be no problem.
