How can I solve error 429?

Hello everyone. I paid 5$ to get chatgpt4 and 4o(I mean I got API). I just used $0.4. The expiration date is Apr 01, 2025, and my state is Available and Paid. but now when I want to use the API key, I receive this error :

openai.RateLimitError: Error code: 429 - {‘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.’, ‘type’: ‘insufficient_quota’, ‘param’: None, ‘code’: ‘insufficient_quota’}}

what should I do and how can I handle it?

You have used all your available funds as indicated by $0.00 / $5.00 in your first line. If you had any available funds, the value would be positive.

Hence, the solution is simple: add more funds to your account :slight_smile:

First of all thanks a million.
my tier is 1. I paid 5$. Now I should pay 50$( tier 2) or I can pay 5$ again?

No worries.

Unless you want to move up in your Tier 1 status, it is sufficient to pay another USD 5. Changing status only becomes relevant when you wish to increase your rate limits.
