Crediting airpoints

Given that airpoints are not credited until the credit card balance is paid - if I do not pay my credit card balance until it is due - which would be after 1 May - does that mean that I will not get the benefit of the all the charges which occurred prior to 1st May in my airpoints account? 

Hiya, Airpoints are credited when the statement is issued. You’ll continue to earn Airpoints up to the 30th of April. From the 1st of May you’ll earn cash back.
