I got a message from my bank after doing an online transaction of €110
You have now paid €110 to xxx.
Is this sentence correct? What does now mean here? Does it mean recently? I am confused because I have already paid the money not just now.
I know one of the definitions of now is immediate past ,very recently but I asked the same question to someone else and he said this is not what it means here
It means now; the status of the invoice now is 'paid'. The message was generated at the time 'now' that you paid it and the message remains on the record. You can search for that message ten years from now, and it will still read 'you have now paid...'
I don't even know what did he wanna say as English ain't my native language
