OpenAI has rolled out its store for custom GPTs and a new ChatGPT subscription tier for smaller teams. The GPT Store allows developers and users to share and profit from their custom versions of the viral chatbot. Meanwhile, ChatGPT Team costs $25 to $30 monthly per user while offering data security and supporting longer queries.

The GPT Store allows OpenAI to turn ChatGPT’s white-hot prominence in the tech world into a tollkeeper’s business model, taking a cut of revenue like in Apple’s App Store. Anyone can build and share GPTs — you don’t need coding experience — but creators must make a Builder Profile that shares their real name or points users to a verified website.

OpenAI says a revenue program for GPT creators is coming soon in Q1. “As a first step, US builders will be paid based on user engagement with their GPTs,” the company wrote, promising to provide more info as the program’s launch approaches. For now, GPT creators will have to settle for riding the hype train and hoping the terms are attractive.

ChatGPT Team

As OpenAI describes it, ChatGPT Team provides “a secure, collaborative workspace to get the most out of ChatGPT at work.” Unlike ChatGPT Enterprise, which was launched in August, the Team tier doesn’t require thousands of dollars or calls with the company’s sales team. Instead, anyone subscribed to ChatGPT Plus or Enterprise can join for $30 (when billed monthly) or $25 (annually) per month.

ChatGPT Team offers access to GPT-4 with a larger (32,000-token) context window for longer queries. In addition, subscribers get higher message caps, and (like with the Enterprise tier) OpenAI says it won’t train its models on ChatGPT Team subscribers’ data or conversations.

The Team tier also provides a “secure workspace,” including an admin console to manage seats. Team members on the plan can also create and share custom GPTs internally. Finally, OpenAI teases that ChatGPT Team subscribers will receive “early access to new features and improvements.”
