GPT Store of OpenAI: A Marketplace for Custom Chatbots

The GPT Store allows users to list and distribute the personalized chatbots or GPTs (generative pre-trained transformers) they have built for others to download.

Users can explore the diverse range of GPTs on the store's community leaderboard, with categories like DALL·E, writing, research, programming, education, and lifestyle.

In a statement, OpenAI highlights the nature of the store, which features GPTs developed by partners and the community. Every week, new GPTs will be featured in the store. Some of the company's first featured GPTs include personalized trail recommendations from AllTrails,

search and synthesize results from 200M academic papers with Consensus, expand coding skills with Khan Academy's Code Tutor, design presentations with Canva, book recommendations with Books, and flexible AI tutoring in math and science with the CK-12 Flexi AI tutor.

OpenAI also plans to introduce a GPT builder revenue program in the first quarter of this year. This program will initially enable builders, particularly in the United States, to earn based on user engagement with their GPTs.

ChatGPT Team: Collaboration for Business

OpenAI's ChatGPT Team, designed for businesses with fewer than 150 users, is priced at $25 per user per month paid annually or $30 per user paid monthly.

This plan includes a shared workspace and facilitates collaborative GPT building within teams. This offering is positioned as a more accessible version of OpenAI's Enterprise offering, aiming to cater to smaller businesses.

"The GPT Store will be available soon for ChatGPT Enterprise customers and will include enhanced admin controls like choosing how internal-only GPTs are shared and which external GPTs may be used inside your business," the OpenAI said. 

The GPT Store, which is not yet available to free-tier users, is OpenAI CEO Sam Altman's most significant consumer product launch since ChatGPT, and it is designed to make AI more practical and accessible.
