  1. By setting up auto top-up, you establish a continuous payment authority (“CPA”) that authorises Post Office Ltd to debit your payment card for the purpose of topping up your Drop & Go account, by the amount you have entered in the setup panel, when your Drop & Go balance falls below the amount you have entered in the setup panel
