ChatGPT Plus: No Credits for DALL.E?

I recently purchased ChatGPT Plus with the intention of using DALL.E. However, after navigating tot he DALL.E plugin, it says I do not have any credits.

Before purchasing DALL.E, there was language on ChatGPT website that implied the plugin was only available to ChatGPT Plus users. However, it would appear I still don’t have access after purchasing. What’s the deal?

Hi and welcome to the Developer Forum!

The Dall-E plugin was a closed Alpha test that has now finished. If you wish to use Dall-e you will need to purchase dall-e image credits to use the service.


is ChatGPT Plus still required to use DALL.E, or can it be used by anyone that buys credits?

By anyone with credit on the site.

Are you sure? I was just reading the “How DALL.E Credits Work” and it states that OpenAI Credits do not apply to DALL.E.

Indeed, You need Dall-E credit on the site, ChatGPT Plus membership ( does not count towards Dall-E credits, GPT-API credit balances ( similarly do not count.
You can obtain a supply of free credits to the tune of 4 a day by visiting OpenAI Discord and going to the Dall-E Daily Theme channel.
