I want to know about the pricing policy for the moderations API.

I’m trying to use the moderations API, but I don’t see any pricing on the open ai pricing page for the text-moderation-stable/latest model, so I have a question.

I would like to know what is the measurement of what you are billed for?
Is it free by any chance?

Hi and welcome to the Developer Forum!

The moderation endpoint is free! No payment is required.


If we are building our own content moderation system using OpenAI’s API, do we need to first run everything through the free moderation endpoint? What if the moderation endpoint flags something, but we still want to check it with our own prompt/api call to classify it further?

If you get a True flag from a moderation check, do not pass it to the model, that way you can show due diligence and best practice adherence should your API usage be called into question.

HI,I wonder if the Chat-GPT API automatically integrates the modeations API, if so ,what kind of moderations’s API does it contains?

Hi and welcome to the Developer Forum!

ChatGPT does not have an API, but it does have moderation. I would expect there is something similar to the API moderation endpoint being used.

Hi , how about gpt-3.5-turbo-1106 ? I want to build a chat app with gpt-3.5-turbo-1106 but I don’t know if it has moderation ,I mean when user talk about Non-compliance stuff , it will not answer straight

Non of the OpenAI models are suitable for that, they all have detection of unsupported topics and continued abuse of the rules may lead to account termination.
