OpenAI is testing a new program that allows US developers to earn money based on the usage of GPT models they create. It was first announced alongside Custom GPTs in November 2023. For now, the AI company has partnered with a small group of developers for this initial test and wants to work with the developer community to determine the best approach for this usage-based compensation model. Details on which developers are participating in the test, the specific terms of revenue sharing, and the timeline for a broader rollout were not disclosed at this time. The announcement comes after reports that GPTs have not been a success so far, and that OpenAI has issues with moderation, political chatbots, and GPT spamming.
