GPT Plus vs Azure Open AI vs GPT Plus

I have bought credits to use for GPT and I also am using Azure OpenAI. Are these mutually exclusive, should I pick one or the other? Also, do I get credits with GPT plus or do I still have to buy API credits to use gpt and dall e, etc with GPT plus. Sorry, but this does not seem clear to me. Any pointers are helpful.

Hey there and welcome to the community!

OpenAI’s API and Azure OpenAI are two different things, so it is up to you which service you would prefer.

ChatGPT Plus and the OpenAI API are also different, separate services. A ChatGPT Plus subscription does not provide any free credits and vice versa. You would have to buy API credits separately.
