How to Obtain an OpenAI API Key

  1. If you do not already possess an OpenAI account, please visit the OpenAI website and create one.

  2. Once your account is active, locate your Secret API key in the User > API Keys section of your settings.

Please be aware that free trial accounts are subject to a relatively low request limit, allowing only 3 requests per minute. Consider upgrading to a pay-as-you-go plan, which offers a significantly higher rate limit.

OpenAI implements a usage-based charging model for access to its API. Be sure to monitor your account to keep track of your usage and manage costs effectively.
