Nee, ik wil het niet doen. Hij betaalt.

I'll pay is not a literal translation, but it is what you would say in English in that situation.

"I'm paying" sounds most natural to me.

What would "Who pays?" translate into?

In keeping with the terseness of the original statement, it would be "Wie betaalt?"
