Have been using Whatsapp for some time and I understand one is supposed to pay for using it under using it for free for the first year. I haven't paid anything after the first free months. So I am just wondering if we are ever going to have to pay for using it.

Don't think so, esp now that Facebook has acquired WhatsApp and that Fb isn't short on money. They said collecting payments from emerging markets was a challenge since unlike the developed world there isn't a standard (i.e VISA/MasterCard) which everyone has so it'd be quite a challenge to accommodate every country's major payment method, esp given most of those are offline payment methods. So you'll notice your WhatsApp subscription is extended automatically when it approaches renewal.

An aside though, some local people's Whatsapp subscriptions did expire and demand renewal. Not sure then what the factors are/were for deciding who renews and who doesn't
