API : The model `gpt-4` does not exist or you do not have access to it


one of our account have access to the model gpt-4 in as user interface,

yet when we use it via API, we are receiving below error.

““message””: ““The model gpt-4 does not exist or you do not have access to it.””,

May I know how to get this resolved please.

Hi there and welcome to the Forum!

ChatGPT and the API are two separate products. A ChatGPT Plus subscription does not imply access to the API.

The good news however is that you can simply set up an organizational account. In order to obtain access to GPT-4 models via the API you need to have at least USD 5 credit in your account.

Here is the link to the API Quickstart guide with more information and here information about the different tiers and the access to different models and associated usage limits.

I hope this helps for clarification!

@jr.2509 - thanks for your response, Now I understood (ChatGPT & ChatGPT API) are different products.

Unless you need chatGPT extensions, using the API is the best bang for your buck if you’re careful with usage, even with plus subscription you have a limit rate on GPT4. GPT3.5 is dirt cheap.
Just saying, it took me a few months to realise the difference
