Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great to have you on board with us in the Community.
When you have a Direct Debit set up, the payment will all come out at once on your agreed date. Any money you pay, goes on to the account as a credit. It would then come off the next bill amount once the new bill is generated.
Hope that makes sense
If you have any further questions, pop back and let us know.
