How to get access to GPT-3 and ChatGPT

Here's the speedrun for setting up an OpenAI account to get access to GPT-3 and ChatGPT.

  1. Go to the OpenAI sign up page.
  2. Create an account. When it asks what you’re using it for, choose building a product or feature. This will get you immediate access.
  3. Once you're in, select Upgrade then I'm an individual.
  4. Add your credit card info so you can keep using it after the trial ends. It's peanuts – literally a handful of cents per 1,000 words generated. It should only be a few bucks a month.
  5. That's it! Time to start AI writing with GPT-3 and ChatGPT.
