Error with quote for free trial account

I am a new openAI Python developer, I am trying to test my assistant, but I always get an error message:
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.

Hi and welcome to the Developer Forum!

You need to add $5 of credit to your API account in the billing section.

Hi Foxabilo, thanks for your quick answer.
Do I have to pay with a credit card?
Are there any other ways?

There currently is no method for prepayment of API account credits other than supported credit card.

The verification of billing information therein ensures know-your-customer legal export requirements of technology are also fulfilled.
