thank you for the response but the post still didn’t clear the error. this is client side of my code, the post request is made in the handleSubmit function

This is also a screenshot of the post request on postman .

Is this error coming from your client to your backend, or from the backend to the OpenAI API?

It is from the backend to the OpenAI API

it is coming from this " const response = await openai.createImage({
prompt: “A cute baby sea otter”,
n: 2,
size: “1024x1024”,
});" in the post request.

Ok, and have you checked that your API key is getting read in correctly from the environment? i.e. have you logged it to console as a test?

Also things like, making sure your API account has a payment method assigned to it.

The API key is getting read in correctly from the environment, and I haven’t added a payment method yet. Does that mean I can’t make a post request without adding my card to the payment method?

Can you generate an image from the labs site?

I can’t generate an image, it says i don’t have credit and i should buy 1

Ok, then that seems to be the issue, if you add credit you should be able to generate images.
