How to Pay - NEW for 2018/19 Season

The Club has simplified the payment options for this season.  Full details are below.

Remember: pay early, pay less !

OVERVIEW

TBBHC uses Gocardless to collect membershp fees (BACS or bank transfer payments should only be used as a last resort as these are not visible to us in the Clubbuzz accounting system).

In order to pay, you must first re-register your membership for the new season - if you are lapsed or late and do not know how to re-register, please contact your Membership Secretary who can do this for you.

To pay your membership fee or check your statement of account, go to 'My Account' at https://teambathbuccaneers.clubbuzz.co.uk/my_account

JUNIOR ACADEMY MEMBERS

These instructions apply to Junior Academy Members only ie. not to U18 Members playing Senior hockey.

Payment for members of the Junior Academy is due from 15 August annually which is when the first Billing Statement is issued to members.

There is now only one payment option for Junior Academy members:

a. 1 x Annual manual payment (Gocardless).  The advantage of this method is that it is very flexible, you avoid paying the 'Late Rate' and you can get the fee out of the way early. The payment process is simple: go to My Account after 15 August, click on your first / latest Statement and then pay manually using the blue 'Pay with GOCARDLESS' button at the bottom right of the screen.  

Please CHECK your account settings - if you have a Gocardless Direct Debit set up from last year, the system will automatically charge you in August so you may wish to cancel it. If you keep the direct debit, then the system will automatically charge you after your first statement.  You must therefore rememeber that when your child leaves the Club, you need to cancel the direct debit it via My Account and de-register your child - or you could continue to be charged!

Remember, if you dont pay early you will be charged the Late Rate.  Additionally, where we introduce age group caps, those who have not paid will always be capped out first.

BACS payments should not be made unless approved by the Membership Secretary.  Monthly instalments are not allowed by the system.

STUDENT MEMBERS

Payment for Student members is due from 15 October when the first Billing Statements are issued - this means you must either pay in full by then or set up monthly instalments.  On 31 October, prices go up to the 'Late Rate' and you will be charged at this higher rate. 

There are 2 payment options for Student members: 

a. 1 x Annual manual payment (Gocardless).  The advantage of this method is that you not only avoid paying the 'Late Rate' and also get an additional 10% discount - so you can get this all out of the way for less cost at the start of the year and then its done!  The payment process is simple: go to My Account after 15 October, click on your first Statement and then pay manually using the blue 'Pay with GOCARDLESS' button at the bottom right of the screen.  You MUST also check that you have un-ticked the Direct Debit and Pay by instalment boxes in your account or you will be debited automatically.  Once the payment is received, the Club will refund you the 10% discount.  The downside is that you MUST remember to make the payment each year or you will be charged the Late Rate.

b. 6 x Monthly Direct Debits (Gocardless).   The advantage of setting up instalments is that you avoid the 'Late Rate' and can spread payments over 6 monthly instalments between end Oct to end March.  To do this, go to https://teambathbuccaneers.clubbuzz.co.uk/my_account click on 'Account Settings', 'Edit Settings' and tick the 'Pay subs monthly when possible' box.  Then press the green 'Set up Direct Debit' button and fill in the associated Direct Debit form.  Then you're done - its quick and easy, but you do need to take both actions.  If you are paying by this option, you must set this up by NLT 1 Oct in order for the first instalment to be processes by the end of Oct.  

SENIOR, U18 AND LIFE MEMBERS

These instructions apply to Full Senior, Half Senior, Life, U18 and Half U18 membership categories.

Payment for these Membership Categories is due from 15 October annually when the first Billing Statements are issued - this means you must either pay in full by then or set up monthly instalments.  On 31 October, prices go up to the 'Late Rate' and you will be charged at this higher rate. 

Members have 3 payment options as follows: 

a. 6 x Monthly Direct Debits (Gocardless).   This is the preferred method of payment for these membership categories. The advantage of setting up instalments is that you avoid the 'Late Rate' and can spread payments over 6 monthly instalments between end Oct to end March.  To do this, go to https://teambathbuccaneers.clubbuzz.co.uk/my_account click on 'Account Settings', 'Edit Settings' and tick the 'Pay subs monthly when possible' box.  Then press the green 'Set up Direct Debit' button and fill in the associated Direct Debit form.  Then you're done - its quick and easy, but you do need to take both actions.  If you are paying by this option, you must set this up by NLT 1 Oct in order for the first instalment to be processes by the end of Oct.  

b. 1 x Annual Direct Debit Instalment (Gocardless).  The advantage of setting up an annual single Direct Debit is that you get your payment sorted out in one go, avoiding the Late Rate and once its set up it will automatically pay your membership fee each season.  The down side is that you must remember to ensure that each season you are in the right membership category and be sure to de-register with the Club and cancel the Direct Debit (via your My Account) if you leave the Club.  Setting up this method is simple: go to https://teambathbuccaneers.clubbuzz.co.uk/my_account click on 'Account Settings', 'Edit Settings' and tick the the green 'Set up Direct Debit' button and fill in the associated Direct Debit form.  DO NOT tick 'pay by instalments'.  Then you're done - its quick and easy.  If you are paying by this option, you must set this up by NLT 1 Oct in order for the first instalment to be processes by the end of Oct.  

c. 1 x Annual manual payment (Gocardless).  The payment process for this method is simple and flexible but you must remember to do it before 31 Oct each year.  Go to My Account after 15 October, click on your first statement and then pay manually using the blue 'Pay with GOCARDLESS' button. 

TRAINING & SOCIAL MEMBERS

These instructions apply to Training & Social Members only.  Payment for T&S members is due from 15 September annually which is when the first Billing Statement is issued to members.

The payment process is simple: go to My Account after 15 September, click on your first Billing Statement and then pay manually using the blue 'Pay with GOCARDLESS' button at the bottom right of the screen.
