This: "If you have a paid subscription for Adobe Exchange, you can download Configurator 3 from the resources page" is from here: https://www.adobeexchange.com/resources/7
I don't believe getting and using Confiurator 3 requires any payment of anything. But what is the key to success with either registering for the Exchange or pursuing the benefits of a paid subscription there?
Right now Adobe exchnage is in prerelease so there is no charge for it whatsoever. While we think that offering unlimited products to users will become a paid subscription offering the pricing has not been determined yet and any users can submit up to 10 products of which 2 can be paid at any time anyway. So there is no charge for Configurator and you can also download it from the Adobe Labs site here:
I also created a video on using Configurator 3 and provding Adobe exchnage compatible products on Adobe TV:
I hope that helps.
