just wanted clarification on the following. We received our statement for the credit card due on 3 July and decided to pay it early. So we transferred an amount onto the card from our offset account and it has shown up as going in correctly but the "statement balance" still shows as the full amount owing but the minimum amount payment Is gone.
For example, if the statement balance due on July 3 is "-$3000" and then we transfer $2500 into the card, shouldn't the statement balance be "-$500"?
just want to make sure we are paying off the card correctly and in full

Hi @Dave, thanks for your question :-) The statement balance will show the amount that was owing on the day that the statement is issued, and won't change in online banking when you make a payment towards it, whereas the minimum balance will show the amount required before the due date to avoid any late fees being raised, this amount will update automatically when payments are made to the card, so that you can see in real time how much (if any) you still need to pay before the due date. I hope this helps clear up any confusion :-)

Ok perfect! Thank you very much for your help!
so as long as I transfer the amount shown in the statement balance to to credit card before the due date then I pay no interest on that?
