    I have integrated Authorize.net within my form but I need to add a set fee so that whenever someone uses that form it charges a fee. Would I do that within the payment settings or do I need to contact Authorize.net to do that?

    I've cloned your form and I can see you're using the user defined amount payment type, you're also asking your user directly for the amount to be paid in the payment field.
