When are dividends paid for this share? Thank you!

Today is the Paid Date so you can expect it between now and the next few days

Thanks very much! Does this apply if you’ve only had the shares for a week?

If you look on the webpage I have linked above you can see a column called ex-div date. That’s the last day you are able to buy shares in order to be eligible for a dividend. The record date is usually the day after and the number of shares held at this date determine how much dividend you get paid.
