What are GPTs?

GPTs are custom versions of ChatGPT that users can tailor for specific tasks or topics by combining instructions, knowledge, and capabilities. They can be as simple or as complex as needed, addressing anything from language learning to technical support.

Who can create GPTs?

Plus, Team, and Enterprise users can create GPTs this week through the GPT Builder. Users can discover useful and fun GPTs from creators in the GPT Store, where we spotlight the most useful and delightful GPTs we come across in categories like productivity, education, and lifestyle.

Free tier users can discover and use GPTs in our GPT store with message limits.

Do I need to know how to code to create GPTs?

No coding skills are required, making it accessible to experts in any field or anyone with a passion for a topic! For developers, additional customization is possible through coding actions that connect GPTs to external data or services.

How do I create a GPT?

You can start creating a GPT by having a conversation with the GPT Builder in ChatGPT at https://chatgpt.com/gpts/editor. You'll add instructions, upload files to its knowledge base, and select its capabilities, such as web searching, image creation, or data analysis.

What are some examples of GPTs?

Examples include Canva and Zapier AI Actions. GPTs range across categories like productivity, education, and entertainment, addressing niche needs or everyday tasks.

Can I make money from my GPT?

We are currently testing monetization with a handful of GPT Builders at this time. Creators may earn money based on the usage of their GPTs by the community, subject to our terms.

How are privacy and safety handled in GPTs?

Creators of GPTs cannot access user conversations with their GPTs. OpenAI has automatic systems to help ensure GPTs adhere to usage policies, preventing harmful content and impersonation. Users can report concerns for further review. For further details and updates on data privacy, please refer to OpenAI's official Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

What is the GPT Store?

The GPT Store is a marketplace where users can search for and access various GPTs. GPTs can be featured, and users can explore different categories to find GPTs that suit their needs.

Can ChatGPT Enterprise customers use GPTs?

Yes, enterprise customers can create internal-only GPTs for specific business needs, departments, or proprietary datasets, without coding. An admin console is provided for managing how GPTs are shared within the organization.

What happens when the owner of a GPT leaves the organization?

Organization owners can manually transfer GPT ownership before removing a user. If the user is removed without selecting a new owner, the GPT will be automatically assigned a new owner from the existing organization owners.

How do GPTs relate to OpenAI's mission?

The creation and community involvement with GPTs align with OpenAI's mission to build safe and beneficial AGI. It enables a broader range of input on AI development, increasing the diversity of ideas and approaches for safer AI outcomes.

Can GPTs be integrated with or accessed on other websites?

No, GPTs can only be accessed on https://chatgpt.com, and cannot be integrated with other websites. For example, a GPT cannot be integrated into a website using WordPress, Squarespace, or any other website builder. Consider using the Assistants API if you'd like to build your own customer AI application or website.

Are there rate limits associated with GPTs?

ChatGPT is free to use, and Free tier users now have limited access to GPTs in our GPT store, as capacity permits.

GPT-4o rate limits for free users are shared between GPTs and ChatGPT. When you hit your text rate limit for GPT-4o, you won't be able to use GPTs until your rate limit resets.

If you reach a rate limit for any of the following tools, you will need to wait for a later time to use any of these tools with a GPT:

  • Data analysis with ChatGPT

  • File uploads

  • Browsing with ChatGPT

Is performance for GPTs different for users on the Free tier?

GPT usage on the Free tier is subject to the same limitations as ChatGPT. GPT advanced functionality includes data analysis, file uploads, web browsing, and DALL•E. As a Free user, you won’t be able to use DALL•E, and also may hit tighter limits for advanced capabilities. When you hit these limits, you may see a message such as the one below:

As a Free user, your GPT-4o text rate limit will also apply to GPTs.
