Any system for identification at login costs money. However, there is a distinctive difference between DigiD and eHerkenning. The cost of DigiD is paid for by the government through tax revenue. So everyone pays for it, regardless of whether you use it or not. The costs for Eherkenning are not paid from tax revenue and are therefore only charged to the entrepreneurs who use it.
