OpenAI Introduces New Store for Users to Share Custom Chatbots

OpenAI has launched an online store where people can share customized versions of the company's popular chatbot ChatGPT after management changes last year delayed the launch, according to reports.

The new store, which opened for paid ChatGPT users, features chatbots that users create for various tasks, such as a version of ChatGPT that can teach children math or come up with colorful cocktail recipes.

The product, called the GPT Store, will include chatbots that users have chosen to share publicly. It will eventually introduce ways for people to make money from their creations — much as they might through the app stores of Apple Inc. or Alphabet Inc.’s Google.

Similar to those app stores, OpenAI’s GPT Store will let users see the most popular and trending chatbots on a leaderboard and search for them by category. In a blog post announcing the rollout, OpenAI said that people have made 3 million custom chatbots thus far, though it was not clear how many were available through its store at launch.

People who pay for ChatGPT access — including enterprise customers and ChatGPT Plus subscribers — are eligible to use or make custom GPTs. Initially users won’t be able to profit off their chatbots

The store’s launch comes as OpenAI works to build out its ecosystem of services and find new sources of revenue. OpenAI also announced a new paid ChatGPT tier for companies with smaller teams that start at $25 a month per user. OpenAI first launched a corporate version of ChatGPT with added features and privacy safeguards in August.
