How is this program paid for. I found it under a FREE sight. What does it actually cost?
Is it a yearly payment for license?

No. If you buy a QCAD version it is yours and you can use it as long as you like. But the free updates will end after one year - if you like to keep up with all new developments of QCAD after one year you can buy a update license which has which is right now sweetened with a 30% rebate.
