3. For members opting into the Upfront Payment Plan option, full payment will be debited in October, 2016 or upon receipt of application if received after this date.

If any payment fails to transfer between institutions on the 28th of the month further attempts will be made to attempt to clear the fund transfer. Members applying for the Monthly Payment Plan option after the first scheduled payment will have the total number of lapsed payments deducted upon receipt of application and then subsequent payments debited at each specified date.
5. If your debit is returned or dishonoured by your financial institution, a letter will be sent requesting immediate payment. Any fees levied to you by your financial institution will be payable by you.
6. In the event two consecutive monthly payments are missed a dishonour fee of $20 will be charged plus arrears. In the event three consecutive payments are missed a dishonour fee of $50 will be charged plus arrears and your membership will be suspended, thus prohibiting the use of your membership card and entitlements. In the event four or more consecutive payments are missed your membership will be cancelled and you will no longer be a member of the Western Bulldogs. Your consecutive years of members will be ceased and you will be required to start your consecutive years of membership from year one.

You will be unable to renew your membership and Bulldog For Life status for the following year if there is any outstanding balances from the previous season.
