For Kindle Direct Publishing, the minimum price you can set is $0.99.

I published a short story and wanted to price it at $0.49. This is because it is a short story of about 500 words. Its short and sharp though.

Can any one tell me how to indicate that it is a single and not a long story to potential readers.

I have always believed that being honest and upfront is always the best policy.

In the description say "short story - 20 pages" or some such.

I've seen this on the cover of some single short stories:

[title] A short story written by [name].
