What is ChatGPT?
Let’s be honest, OpenAI and ChatGPT have been booming ever since the official launch on November 30th 2022. People have been exploring the possibilities, but what is it exactly? ChatGPT is an AI Chatbot initially developed by Open AI to be used for customer service. The chatbot is trained to respond like support teams would on customer questions. However, ChatGPT is also used for other solutions, like writing code, blog posts, stories and translating.
Is ChatGPT free?
The simple answer is, yes ChatGPT is free – for now. It’s free for personal use and commercial use. Seeing that the tool is in feedback stage, OpenAI’s strategy is most likely to have as many people use it to obtain more data to fine-tune the model and service.
OpenAI has launched a $20/month paid version recently, called ChatGPT Plus. Although the functionalities for the Plus plan are similar to the standard free plan, it does come with benefits. You get early access to the latest features, faster response times and you always have access to the chatbot whenever there is peak usage.
Besides the Plus plan, there is also a Pay as You go plan for OpenAI’s API – GPT-3. You simply select a language model that suits your (developer) needs, and pay per 1K tokens used. You can choose between Ada, Babbage, Curie and Davinci – which is the most powerful and similar to ChatGPT.
What payment methods are accepted for OpenAi and ChatGPT Plus?
After creating an OpenAI account, users can select “Payment methods” under the Billing tab to add a payment card. Any of the following cards are accepted:
