You pay not for ds-160, it is on- line free form. You pay the fee to schedule your interview -- a receipt number will be needed-- and it is for visa at the same time. And yes, it is 265$.

Actually if the USC is paying by credit card online it is more than that plus an international conversion fee. Found out the hard way. So for example the fee says 265 US dollars I paid twice for my fiancé and his son so I thought 530 dollars right? wrong after the conversion I paid 62,300 Jamaica dollars which is 551 dollars American. plus my credit card charged me a 17 dollars conversion international fee. Check the Embassy conversion of 265 USD to Pesos and if your credit card does not have a international waiver fee attached plan on paying 3.5 percent on top of that. good luck.
