RateLimitError: You exceeded your current quota

I got this when trying to use the API:

RateLimitError: You exceeded your current quota

I’ve only spent $11.04 in the month of September.

Does anyone know if I can increase this quota or why it’s so low?



Hi and welcome to the Developer Forum!

If your account is Prepay you must load it with additional credit to use the API with increased limits. If your account is Pay as Your go monthly, have you got a valid card card added to your account?

For further account based questions please see help.openai.com

The account is loaded with $100. We have used $11.04 worth.

This response does not address the issue of the Rate Limit Error.

Go here, see what your current credit balance is.

Go here, see what your approved usage limit is, and what you set the hard limit to yourself.

Account credits will go to paying off any existing monthly bill first if you just deleted an old payment plan with monthly billing and started new prepay. You might need to feed it money until you are positive.
