Hi! Thanks for your question. The third option is more polite, because you aren't asking directly for payment of the bill.

The third is also most correct grammatically, because in the first two sentences the adjective, "attached," should go directly in front of the noun it's describing, "debit note." In other words, the first sentence should read, "Please pay the attached debit note."

However, as I've explained, the third option is most polite. Thank you!!
