💡Note: DALL·E API is billed separately from labs.openai.com. Credits granted/purchased on labs.openai.com do not apply to DALL·E API. For the latest information on DALL·E API pricing, please see our pricing page.
What’s a DALL·E Credit?
You can use a DALL·E credit for a single request at labs.openai.com: generating images through a text prompt, an edit request, or a variation request.
Credits are deducted only for requests that return generations, so they won’t be deducted for content policy warnings and system errors.
How many free credits do I get?
You get 50 free credits your first month.
15 free credits will replenish every month after that, on the same day of the month.
For example, if you signed up on August 3rd, your free credits will refill on September 3rd.
If you joined on the 29th, 30th, or 31st of every month, your free credits will refill on the 28th of every month.
Free credits don’t roll over to the next month, so they expire a month after they were granted – but you’ll get 15 new free credits.
How do I buy DALL·E credits?
You can buy DALL-E credits by using the “Buy Credits” button in your account page, or in the profile photo dropdown menu.
How do DALL·E credits work if I belong to a multi-person organization account?
Both free and paid credits are shared within each org.
Only the owners of an org account can buy credits for the org.
What are the differences between free and paid credits?
Free credits expire one month after they were granted, and paid credits expire 12 months from the date of purchase.
You currently get the same set of rights (including commercial use), regardless of whether an image was generated through a free or paid credit.
