You pay $99 per year. You can upload any number of apps. Apple pay directly to your bank account when you reach the pay-out minimum limit.

Apple pays once a month, within 45 days after the end of the fiscal month for sales in that month, by wire transfer directly into a bank account you specify.

You need to read the iOS Developer and iTunes Connect documentation very carefully to understand the dozens and dozens of steps required to upload apps and have them approved. Many more steps than can be listed here, and don't skip any of these steps or you will fail.

I have an app that is close to being done and was looking at the same thing. Going through the app docs with all the stuff you need to do is complicated. They ask for a binary file if I remember right and all I know of binary are 1's an 0's and have no clue what a binary file is. I am getting ready in the next couple of months to try to find a Tutorial Series on preparing and uploading you app.

If anyone knows of a video that covers the whole process I would love to see it.

Tried Stanford University Video's? I think they cover everything about it.
This Binary file you are talking about is an .IPA, if you follow the guidelines, then there should be no issue at all.
