Payment option - Paypal?

Any chance to add Paypal at all as a payment option?

OpenAI’s Terms of Service requires users to be 18 or older.

To get a credit card in the USA, you need to be 18 or older.

I suspect this might be why OpenAI only accepts credit cards.

Using PayPal I can pay in USD without paying currency conversion costs. Living outside of the US, like most the world’s population does, I would really appreciate being able to pay in a currency other than USD or to pay in USD using a facility where I have USD stored. Can we have some movement on this, please?

I asked this question to chatgpt, and it said openai don’t accept Paypal for the reason that Paypal charge too much…

I would happily pay double if I could use paypal. Or even amazon vouchers, crypto, or anything else. In the Philippines only about 5% of people have a bank account - because banks here charge an arm and a leg just to store your money. - and only 2% have a credit card.
It has given me an idea though, maybe I can set up a chatGPT proxy with every payment method under the sun.

^ up.
This needs attention. Would love to pay to work with the API & do research on the interface, but I don’t have a credit card (on purpose). And thus I want to pay via a different way. There’s options enough for OpenAI to implement…

The problem with PayPal as a merchant system, at least when I’ve worked with it, is that charging fees to users is generally a no-no. When I setup other payments I can set fees and or surcharges in my shopping or invoice systems but PayPal either must not allow it or don’t provide it in their API that I often don’t ofter PayPal.

Dear OpenAI team, some people simple can’t obtain a credit card or don’t want a credit card for security reasons, but are over the age of 18, if that is the mere reason why credit card only, but please come up with future alternative payment methods such as paypal or even direct banking. you will gain so much more subscribers.
