Update for "legacy" monthly bill OpenAI API users - you also can buy credits?

Checking my new billing month and see that, besides my rate limits being changed and aligned with the 20k multiples of the “tier” system of prepay, we have a new running total and new button on the billing overview - where we can give OpenAI money upfront anyway despite our arrears credit line.


I suspect OpenAI will turn up the pressure on monthly users also to keep their bank account filled with unrefundable money. Pressure like dumping accounts onto low-speed models until users fill the coffers.
