I want to set up my first AI zap with OpenAI’s API, but keep on running into the same error:


This is despite that I have a paid OpenAI account. On the website, it says I have a bunch of usage left, so I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong.



I’ve also tried to generate a new API key already & re-sync the account with Zapier.

Appreciate your help!

Do you have a paid OpenAI plan?

Yes, I do have a paid OpenAI plan, but not ChatGPT plus (if that matters)

Does the issues still exist?

Sometimes apps put in thresholds/limits for short term usage to avoid being overused.

I am seeing the same issue on a new, free account on GPT. Was this resolved?

Hi @wovicl,

If the suggestions didn’t work, and if you haven’t reached your quota yet, but still seeing the error, could you please reach out to the team at OpenAI? They should have more information.

Thanks! 😊
