Question about Free books for Kindle

Maybe this info is available somewhere in the vast online help community already, but how do I price my Kindle ebook for 'free'? When I set up my information the lowest price available is .99, and when I tried to put in 0.00 as a price, KDP wouldn't accept it. This particular ebook is a short story, and I've made it available elsewhere for free so readers can sample my work (I'm a new writer). Can I not sell books as 'free' as a new publisher at Amazon?

The only ways you can have the book for free on Kindle is either run a promotion for 5 days in every 90 but you would need to be in select and as you say you have the book elsewhere I guess that is not the case. The other way is for you or someone to report the lower price you have elsewhere and Amazon will price match.
