OpenAI’s delayed GPT store set to launch next week

OpenAI’s GPT store, a platform for users to sell and share customised artificial intelligence (AI) agents, will officially launch next week, following a delay in its launch, according to an email to Generative Pre-Trained Transformer (GPT) builders.

According to The Verge, the email asked users to double-check that their GPT creations meet brand guidelines and reminded them to make their GPTs public.

OpenAI’s GPT Store, announced last year during DevDay, was delayed in December due to a leadership shakeup in November when CEO Sam Altman was removed by the board, and was brought back with a new board after panic among investors and employees.

In its first announcement in November, it was revealed that the company would let other people build AI agents, called GPTs, using its GPT-4 large language model.

GPTs do not require coding experience and can be as simple or complex as a developer wishes, according to TechCrunch.

The store, which is exclusive to ChatGPT Plus and enterprise subscribers, allows users to customise ChatGPT-style chatbots, such as ones that walk users through negotiations or explain Gen Z memes.

Although users may access custom GPTs created by OpenAI through ChatGPT Plus’s explore page, the store would enable users to share and profit from their GPTs.

OpenAI has stated that it will find a mechanism to compensate GPT developers according to the amount of usage that their AI agents receive on the marketplace, but it has not yet disclosed any further information about the strategy.
