Charging for API access as an paid individual

Hi Open Ai,

I know why you would have to charge Devs for APi integration, but why are you charging paid individual members for API access. All i want to do is use my api to integrate with 3rd party apps plugins in MS office, like word, excel etc. Can we have a single API that individuals can use for 3rd party integration with cap on the API based on current usage terms?
