Monthly vs API Paid Plans

I am currently a monthly subscriber who would like to gain access to the playground. Do i need to maintain (aka pay for) both types of accounts? Should I cancel my monthly subscription and move to a per Token paid plan?

In the per Token model, do I still have access to the ChatGPT Plus interface? Does the 25 messages per 3 hours constraint still apply?


ChatGPT (and Plus) is completely separate from API/Playground. You’ll need to enter in API billing info here OpenAI API
