    Welcome to the community @mcdonagh30 :) How are you doing? If you give us a few extra details about the payment you're waiting for, then I'm sure someone will be able to help. 

    Just to let you know, I've renamed your post slightly and moved it into the UC category for now so that other members will be able to find it more easily.
