OpenAI’s imminent launch of the GPT Store was heralded through an email communication to GPT Builders, as detailed by The Verge. Recipients were directed to ensure adherence to brand guidelines for their GPT developments and advised to designate their GPT files as “public.”
Empowering Custom AI Agents: GPT-4 Unveiling
Initially revealed during OpenAI’s November developer conference, the introduction of GPT-4 as a tool for creating AI agents—termed GPTs—marked a significant shift. Accessible solely to ChatGPT Plus and enterprise-level subscribers, this functionality empowered the crafting of personalized ChatGPT-style chatbots, catering to diverse needs from meme explanations to negotiation assistance.
Monetization Prospects and Delayed Launch
While OpenAI’s custom GPTs were confined to the Research tab of ChatGPT Plus, the impending store will open avenues for users to distribute and monetize their own AI creations, notes NIX Solutions. OpenAI intends to devise a payment structure for GPT creators based on the activity and usage of their AI agents within the store. However, specific details regarding this compensation plan remain undisclosed. Originally slated for a November release, the GPT Store encountered delays due to a bustling month at OpenAI, involving changes in leadership and subsequent postponed launch dates, leading to an extended timeline for its debut.
