    1) If you fail to pay the money within or after the specified period of time, you will need to pay for a penalty.
    2) He specified that he will pay the money on this saturday.
    3) Please specify when you will make the payment.

    1) If you fail to pay the money within or after the specified period of time, you will need to pay for a penalty.

    I take this to mean you can pay at any time and avoid a penalty. However It sounds like you have to buy a penalty, so I would say:

    1) If you fail to pay the money within or after the specified period of time, you will need to a penalty fee.

    "pay a", not "pay for a"
