Api error keeps showing up

I keep getting this error: You exceeded your current quota, please check your plan and billing details. For more information on this error, read the docs: https://platform.openai.com/docs/guides/error-codes/api-errors.

What does it mean?

What is the number that is coming back with the error? It’s going to be something like 401, 402, etc. Check that number and match it up with the error in the link you posted.

There was never a number. This error even appeared in the playground.

I thought it was a billing error or the number of times i tried to run the api in my code was too many times. I am really lost at this point. I first experience it using pycharm. But i received the same error in the playground and as you know that’s not using pycharm.

You reached certain limit of your api account. Here’s an explanation: https://platform.openai.com/docs/guides/rate-limits?context=tier-free

The error is going to be 429: “feed me more money on your billing overview page”
