There are two main license types, Customer and Customer Plus. The biggest thing that drives you to Customer Plus ends up being security, as Customer Plus is needed for roles & sharing. This is a good resource for comparison:

Beyond that, you can choose named or login-based licenses. Based on the pricing you get from Salesforce, you can do the math on whether it makes sense to pay based on user or based on the total number of logins for all of your customers in the community (or a split, choosing named for the users who become frequent users).
