OpenAI Launches GPT Store for Custom ChatGPT Apps

OpenAI has officially launched the GPT Store for custom generative AI apps powered by its large language models (LLMs). Those who create a GPT through ChatGPT’s builder can share them in the GPT Store, with OpenAI promising potential monetization.

Developers who want to put their GPT in the GPT Store must share access with Everyone rather than just Those with a link. They also need to verify their profile. OpenAI will review GPTs to ensure policy compliance in addition to existing safety measures. The GPT Store features trending and useful GPT chosen by OpenAI as particularly worthy or impactful, divided among categories like research tools, tutors, and designers. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman first unveiled plans for GPTs and the GPT Store at the company’s Dev Day last year. It got pushed back in December as the chaotic leadership fight and short-lived firing of Altman in November settled down.

“It’s been two months since we announced GPTs, and users have already created over 3 million custom versions of ChatGPT. Many builders have shared their GPTs for others to use,” OpenAI explained in a blog post. “The store features a diverse range of GPTs developed by our partners and the community. Browse popular and trending GPTs on the community leaderboard, with categories like DALL·E, writing, research, programming, education, and lifestyle.”

The GPT Store also limits publishing and usage to ChatGPT Plus, Team, and Enterprise subscribers users at the moment. ChatGPT Team customers can publish GPTs to their workspace, making them available only to those on the subscription plan. Later this year, ChatGPT Enterprise will provide controls over internal GPT sharing and usage of external options.

OpenAI plans to start paying qualifying GPT builders in the next couple of months, beginning with those in the U.S. Payment will be based on engagement and usage of their GPTs, though the rest of the details are still unrevealed. That approach has much in common with the Poe creator economy Quora introduced. For now, developers cannot charge for GPTs in the store. OpenAI has said it won’t allow data monitoring or sharing from private GPT chats but that creators will get some usage analytics to refine their agents. The company will also use moderation to block inappropriate content. As for what GPTs will be most popular, here’s Altman sharing his prediction on X (formerly Twitter)
