Giving Something Away Can Be Harder Than Selling It for Cheap

Not always tho, depends on the context. It isn’t just about the price, you need to think of it as a whole package to get the right understanding.

Why people will buy something for dirt cheap but not take it away for free
You’re changing the perceived value and the whole outlook/perception of the transaction
When you’re giving it away for free, the things that are wrong with it become revelations/discoveries/realizations that seem very big and become much valid/significant
When you’re selling for dirt cheap, they become explanations for the price… and seem reasonable/insignificant/invalid
Same product. Different context. Different visualizations/imaginations/perceptions/persumed stories around it.
