    When should the payment be expected

    If some insurance rep tells me that payment is going to be made but after few days. Can I ask her.

    "When should the payment be expected?"

    "When would you be paying us?"

    "After how many days would you be paying us?"

    'After how many days will you make the payment?'

    Not a teacher.

    Re: When should the payment be expected

    Are those three sentences of mine incorrect?

    Re: When should the payment be expected

    I would use "When can we expect payment?" or "When will you pay us?" I see no reason for using "would" or the continuous in your examples.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
