The GPT Store allows OpenAI to leverage ChatGPT’s influence in the tech world into a pay-as-you-go business model, similar to Apple’s App Store.

OpenAI says it will soon launch a revenue program for GPT creators in the quarter. “As a first step, US builders will be paid based on user engagement with their GPTs,” the company wrote, promising to provide more information as the program gets closer to launch. For now, GPT creators will have to be content to ride the hype train and hope the terms are attractive.
