Chech out this website: http://bettysplendens.com
There's a LOT of information on bettas and many breeding methods.
It's something not to be taken lightly and there's a LOT of time and expense involved in getting the setup and raising the fry.

If you don't even know to use water conditioner, you are a long way from being knowledgeable enough to breed. Please wait and learn before you even consider breeding, and please buy some water conditioner; it removes chloramines, which are very dangerous to your fish.

You MUST ALWAYS use water conditioner. Please rethink breeding them for now.

Check out this site, it should have all the answers. http://bettysplendens.com
I would say the cheapest thing to use is the shallow spawn method.

What water source are you using? If you're using tap water that doesn't contain chloramine, you don't really need a conditioner. Just age your water with a running airstone for at least 24 hours. Longer = better. But if it contains chloramine, you definitely need dechlors - preferable one that neutralizes metals as well.
Natural water (river) and well water doesn't need dechlors. Just make sure the hardness is suitable.

Breeding tank is personal preference. You can use glass tanks so you can see everything or plastic tubs (cheaper) but you can't see everything going on in the tub. As long as it's big enough - for beginners I suggest at least 10g of water. IMO wide is better than tall.

A full grown female can lay over 1000 eggs. But only few will survive to adult, specially since this is your first time. Perhaps you will only end up with 20 or so.

I suggest you read more, then ask what you're still uncertain of before you begin to breed. Don't rush it or you'll end up with dead fish instead.
