Hello, I've bought BHP shares last week (Wed 19/12/2007)...though until now haven't seen the money being debited from my Commonwealth CDIA linked account. I however have received the contract note via email and mail.....and it lists a settlement date of 27/12/2007. Does your money get debited on the settlement date automatically???.....or do i need to manually pay for it using BPAY (which is mentioned on the contract note)... I've thought all along that there would be an automatic transaction on the day of purchase??? Thanks.
