New Guide on API Rate Limits (Available Now)

Pinged the team to look into this. Should be resolved soon.


Are you talking specifically about the moderation API?

OK, upgrading my OPENAI account to paid fixed the issue. Duh.

I am getting the same errors, do you have to include your organization ID in the request? I have two accounts, a free one and a paid one, but most of the time I get wrong api key requests, when switching between the keys, but I know the keys are correct.

Question 2:
Does the model text-davinci-003 not use free tokens?

You can see my usage is zero (on free account):

But I get this error:

“error”: {
“message”: “You exceeded your current quota, please check your plan and billing details.”,
“type”: “insufficient_quota”,
“param”: null,
“code”: null

Ok really I have a free account, and a friend has a paid accounts, and I am making an application for the friend (who has the paid account, and testing the api his API key), so I really only have one account.

Facing exactly same issue, I think after 30 days of inactive period OpenAI make the account suspended.
But not sure about it.

I don’t think it is the 30 days inactive case. It was working a day ago on April 1st and then broke on April 2nd with my iOS “Hey GPT” short cut. So, I suspect that the workaround is to upgrade to a paid account. But the chatgpt website is saying everything is great which means the account is working but the API is somehow disabled despite having plenty of credits from usage page… :slight_smile:

My partner’s free account is working so describing the problem that is limited to some accounts and working for others…

I am facing the same issue. I signed up on November and chat worked properly. I started requesting the API through python the 1st of April and, after not using it, on 12th of April I got the quota error (0.56$/18). I can request properly through chat.openai, but I get quota error through simple API calls.

Same issue. It says I have used $0.00 / $18.00 but when using playground or API I am told I have used all my quota.

When i am trying to call my api to generate prompt using openai keys i am getting error message: ‘You exceeded your current quota, please check your plan and billing details.’
Even though i have full credit left, " You’ve used $0.02 out of the $18.00 total credit granted to you."
