How do I get a SARS tax number?

Hi I would like to know how can I get my tax number online and how much dose it cost for getting a tax number online. I sow on TaxTim that I need to pay R149 or R50 after I have registated with TaxTim, so what's that money for and why so much? if I can't pay what's going to happen?
