This is a bit hard to verify since I think it only happens once for new accounts. However, I’ve got this feedback from 4 different users of my ChatGPT API wrapper UI https://assistant.bloat.app
Steps to reproduce (I think):
- Register a new account (requires a new phone number so I can’t do this)
- Create a new API key from https://platform.openai.com/account/api-keys
- Set up billing from https://platform.openai.com/account/billing/payment-methods
- Try to use the API with the API key
This won’t work according to the feedback I’ve got. The fix is to create another API key after setting up billing. I think the API keys should work regardless of the order, as long as both the API key is created and billing is set up.
