Why my OpenAI Secret key is not working in Replit gpt3.5 turbo

The Error is like this:

Hi, @iamsangram2000 as you can see at the end of the error output, it shows you have reached your limit.

@iamsangram2000 The error message in the last line says that your have exceeded your current quota on your plan. This is regarding your openAI account and the credits you have on it which enables you to run this chatgpt bot. It means that the $5 credit you receive from openAI have become $0 as unused credits auto-expire after a period of 3 months from the creation of your account. Create a new account on openAI with a different email ID and a different phone number to get new $5 worth of credit. With a new API key from that new account, your bot should run perfectly.

Ensure that you’re not exceeding the usage limits provided by OpenAI. Depending on your plan, there might be limitations on the number of requests you can make within a given timeframe.

Check that you’re using the correct API key. Sometimes, copying and pasting can lead to errors.

@iamsangram2000 Hi,the error you are facing is ratelimiterror it means that your openapi key has exceeded the limit so you should use a new api key with the new account.

Hi,@iamsangram2000 the error is stating that you have exhausted the limit for use of your openai api tokens.To solve this you need to create a new account and new api key or pay to get more tokens on same account.Also ensure you copy and paste correct api key in case you create new account.

Hi @maulik_agarwal

To solve the openai credits issue, we have launched the boltioai library using which you can use the API and do the projects. Detailed instructions on how to use the boltiotai library are given in the training content.

Let us know if you still face any issues
