OpenAI has stopped providing free credits for its API. This change was made in December 2022.
There are still a few ways to get free credits for OpenAI’s API. One way is to participate in the OpenAI API waitlist. If you are selected for the waitlist, you will be given a certain amount of free credits to use. Another way to get free credits is to become an OpenAI collaborator. Collaborators are individuals or organizations that have been invited to collaborate with OpenAI on research projects. Collaborators receive a monthly stipend of free credits that they can use to run experiments.
If you are interested in using OpenAI’s API, you can sign up for a free trial or purchase paid credits. The pricing for paid credits starts at $0.02 per credit.
