if I set this at $100 is this the maximum Telstra will take from my account

Re: Direct debit

Yes. It's so that if there are large unexpected charges on your bill, you won't suddenly be left penniless.


You would then need to clear those charges (either by getting them removed by Telstra if in error, or by paying them by the due date to avoid late fees) manually.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
