Problem ChatGPT and Google Sheets Is it necessary the paid version?

Hello, I have successfully made the connection between ChatGPT and the GPT for Sheets Google Chrome extension. The problem is that when I enter the request it returns an error (Error: your OpenAI API free trial is expired or inactive. Please set up a paid account on OpenAI dashboard: OpenAI Platform (line 4456)
I do it with the free version of GPT3 in which I can work without problem.
Is it necessary to use the paid version?
Thank you

The problem is that ChatGPT is a free chatbot app and the API itself is a paid product by OpenAI. You’ll need to recharge your account with some dollars for using that extension, or creating a new account for the free credits you get.
