OpenAI has announced that it is starting to think about how to monetize its popular ChatGPT chatbot and will be launching a premium version of the service, called ChatGPT Professional. The announcement was made on OpenAI’s official Discord server, with a waitlist link outlining the benefits of the new service. Those who fill out the form may be selected to pilot ChatGPT Professional, though it will not be widely available “at this time”.
The benefits of ChatGPT Professional include no “blackout” windows or throttling, and an unlimited number of messages with ChatGPT — at least two times the regular daily limit. OpenAI has also said that it is under pressure to turn a profit on products such as ChatGPT, especially with rumors that Microsoft is investing $10 billion in the company. In addition, investors are interested in purchasing a 49% stake in OpenAI, driving the company’s valuation to around $29 billion.ChatGPT has been incredibly popular since its launch and now has over a million users, attracting major media attention and spawning countless memes on social media. OpenAI’s co-founder and CEO Sam Altman have described the operating expenses of ChatGPT as “eye-watering”, but the service is proving to be worth the cost.
It remains to be seen what OpenAI will charge for ChatGPT Professional, and when exactly the service will become widely available. However, the monetized version of ChatGPT could be the key to OpenAI’s long-term viability and success.

On Tuesday, OpenAI announced that it is exploring ways to monetize its popular AI-powered chatbot, ChatGPT. The announcement was made on OpenAI’s official Discord server, where the team stated that it’s “starting to think about how to monetize ChatGPT” as one of the ways to “ensure [the tool’s] long-term viability.” According to the waitlist link OpenAI posted in the Discord server, the monetized version of ChatGPT will be called ChatGPT Professional and will offer users a range of benefits, this will include unlimited availability to use the chatbot for its users.
OpenAI also said that people who joined the waitlist will be piloting ChatGPT professional, but that the program is still in the experimental stages and won’t be made widely available “at this time.” This news comes after ChatGPT garnered major media attention and attracted over a million users as of early December. Though it has proven to be a publicity win for OpenAI, the chatbot is reportedly a pricey service to run and OpenAI is under pressure to turn a profit on products like ChatGPT ahead of a rumored $10 billion investment from Microsoft. This deal will net Microsoft 49% ownership of OpenAI, valuing the company at around $29 billion. Three-quarters of OpenAI’s profits will go to Microsoft until Microsoft recovers its initial investment. There would be an additional 49% share taken by additional investors, while OpenAI would retain the remaining 2%. Given ChatGPT’s growing popularity and massive user base, OpenAI hopes to use profits from its monetization efforts to further increase engagement and make sure the product remains viable long-term. There are many uses for ChatGPT both personally and professionally:
