What is a credit?

A credit is the unit of account for billing of executions. Every execution costs 1 credit. Credits are purchased by pack. Each pack expires after 90 days. You need to purchase credits to use GPT in Excel.

What is an execution?

An execution is a call of a GPT function from an Excel cell (full list here). Each execution consumes 1 credit. A refresh consumes 1 credit unless the execution is cached. Errors do not consume credits.

How does credit expiration work?

Each pack of credit expires 90 days after their purchase date. It means that credits purchased on June 1st, 2023 will expire on August 30th, 2023. You can buy another credit pack at any time. Credits are consumed in the order of purchase.

Is there a free plan?

You are given free credits to try out GPT in Excel. After consuming your free credits, you must purchase a credit pack to continue using the add-in. Free credits expire 90 days after you install the add-in.

Which natural languages can I use?

OpenAI’s GPT models work in many languages, but deliver the best results in English. All we can say is try it. It is usually better to prompt in the language you want the response to be in. In any case, avoid mixing languages in a prompt.
