Thanks for writing in and great question!
We ask that all Sellers offer their first digital item as a free download to our members. This is called your Primary Free resource. After a Primary Free resource has been added to your store, you’ll then be able to upload as many priced items as you'd like.
We think this practice benefits the whole TpT community. Your free resource serves as your introduction to visitors and Buyers, and gives people a chance to check out your work.
Here's a link to our FAQ that will give you insight as to why we have this policy:

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns and I'll be happy to help.
Have a great day!
