Cost of ChatGPT Pro and Plus plans: how much is ChatGPT

Learn more about ChatGPT’s free and paid plans and their differences.

ChatGPT is so ground-breaking that it broke the record for the fastest-growing application in history. People loved it so much that ChatGPT amassed 100 million users in just two short months with free access. The reason is that it’s a first-of-its-kind Artificial Intelligence (AI) chatbot that can understand language and even talk back to you as a human would. It can explain complex topics, summarize text, organize data, brainstorm, be creative, and a million other things.

So, given that it is so useful, it was no surprise that the company that made ChatGPT, OpenAI, developed a paid version of the product. But how much does the paid version cost? What are the different plans? What’s the difference between them? This is what we will delve into, so keep reading to find out.

Is ChatGPT free?

Yes, ChatGPT is free. They offer a free plan that you can use without paying a single dollar. However, with this free plan, you only have access to GPT-3.5, the second-best Large Language Model (LLM) that ChatGPT has been trained on, with the best being GPT-4. An LLM is essentially the ‘brain’ behind the chatbot. GPT-4 is larger, more powerful, and better at conversing like a human with faster response times.

But don’t worry, with the free version of ChatGPT, you can still do amazing things and make your job easier even in peak times. ChatGPT is at capacity and is great for everyday tasks, even in the free version.

ChatGPT price plans

Is the ChatGPT API free?

No, the ChatGPT API is not free. However, OpenAI offers a free $5 credit, which you can use to test their product.

After your free trial, the price will vary based on which model you use, as well as how much you use it. Their pricing works on a token model, where they are calculated at increments of 1,000 tokens. Tokens are like pieces of words, where 1,000 tokens equal to about 750 words. This paragraph is 76 tokens.

This is what the pricing looks like for OpenAI’s GPT-4 and GPT-3.5 models:
