My wife applied via mail.  I am not sure what you are talking about as to an additional charge for filing online.  I believe if you set up an account on the official USCIS website, you can file the N400 online with no additional fees, but make sure it is the official USCIS website, and not some other website making promises they cannot keep while charging your for it.

 

Good Luck!

Those are independent websites charging money to have someone "submit" the form on your behalf.

Best to fill it out through the official link (at no extra charge ontop of the N400 fee):
