    Correct me please

    Thanks for your information, we will double check the payment with our bank and confirm to you when the payment is received. The original document was send to Polly in March 10, would you please double check with her? or you prefer we send you another one set? Please advise

    Re: Correct me please

    Anglika, thanks.

    But could you tell me whether this (would instead of do) is just about a change, maybe politeness, or it's a error?

    Thank you very much

    Re: Correct me please

    It is politer, but also needed as the sentence starts with the conditional "could". I would not say it is precisely an error to use "do".

    "We will reconfirm with you once the payment has arrived."
    Since it is "will to do sth", why use "the payment has arrived " not "the payment arrives" ? Please.

    Re: Correct me please

    You probably could use either. To me it makes more sense to say you will do something when something else has happened.
