In order to use the API for commercial purposes, Do I need to go through the approval process?


I would like to develop a commercial ai writer using the OpenaAI api, so do I need to go trough an approval process first or I just need to integrate the api in my application and pay the monthly invoices?


Yes, the terms and conditions of OpenAI state that they must approve all commercial apps which use their tech.

The details are easy to find in the OpenAI docs. They may have revised them recently so it is good to read them directly yourself.

This was changed late last year. There is a forum post about it somewhere

You no longer need to have your apps approved. You need to abide by the usage rules (moderation etc), and you may need to reach out if you hit rate limits or billing limits after you go live


hello, iā€™m new to the forum. I want to contact you directly. How can I do that?
