    Smile would be + -ing form

    Hello,

    I wanted to ask if the structure 'would be' + -ing form of a verb is acceptable when talking about the future. For example:

    "You would pay $200 each month"

    or

    "You would be paying $200 each month".

    Are both forms acceptable or not? How do they differ in meaning?

    Thanks for reading my message.

    Re: would be + -ing form

    Yes, both are acceptable and natural, and they carry the same meaning.
