OpenAI’s GPT Store, where users can share their custom chatbots, finally launched on Wednesday after a month-long delay. The store brings more potential use cases to ChatGPT and expands OpenAI’s ecosystem beyond what the company builds for customers.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
Since announcing the GPT Builder program in November, OpenAI said more than 3 million bots – called GPTs – have been created by users. (Yours truly included; I’ve created a GPT that suggests synonyms for common words). The company said it plans to highlight useful GPTs inside the store weekly.
The company originally planned to open the GPT store in November before delaying it to December and finally to January. The platform lets people who have created their own chatbots share their versions of ChatGPT publicly. As of now, only those who subscribe to OpenAI’s paid tiers can create and use custom GPTs.
OpenAI also announced that it will launch a revenue sharing program with GPT creators in the first quarter of the year. GPT builders will be paid based on user interaction with their chatbots, but the company has not yet shared details about what this will look like in practice.
Ahead of the opening of the GPT store, OpenAI said it has established a new review system to ensure that custom GPTs meet its brand guidelines and usage policies. It also updated how GPT users report something they find harmful or unsafe.
GPT Store Chat will be rolled out to GPT Plus and Enterprise users, as well as a new tier of customers called Teams.
ChatGPT Teams is a paid version of ChatGPT aimed at smaller teams of around 150 people. Like ChatGPT Enterprise, ChatGPT Teams provides access to and control over data, advanced data analytics featuring GPT-4, DALL-E 3, and OpenAI. OpenAI said that ChatGPT team data and conversations will not be used to train any of its models. ChatGPT team members can also create custom GPTs for their team’s specific needs or use other GPTs on the store.
ChatGPT Team costs $25 per user per month for annual billing or $30 per month per user for monthly billing.
