As an AI enthusiast who has built multiple AI products, I know the importance of tracking OpenAI API costs, identifying abuse instances and preventing runaway apps. While there are several tools available that enable you to see your API usage by entering the API key, I wanted an effortless and passive monitoring tool to keep track of my API usage.

Keeping this in mind, I developed AI Spend – an intelligent monitoring tool that synchronises your API usage per model in cost, tokens, and requests in an encrypted database. With this tool, you can effortlessly control the costs and avoid any unwarranted surprises on your bills.

AI Spend features an easy-to-use dashboard that presents data in a user-friendly manner. You can analyze cost trends, see which models you’re using the most, and optimize the number of tokens you’re sending with each request. The dashboard also monitors your API usage and conveniently displays notifications that notify you about your spending daily, weekly, or monthly, based on the preferences you have set in advance. With these updates, you’ll get instant feedback on any changes in your API usage, enabling you to make more informed decisions.

I designed AI Spend with ease of use in mind, making onboarding quick and simple. As a user, all you need to do is connect your OpenAI API key, and AI Spend will automatically start tracking your API usage. If you need to track additional API keys, simply add them to your account, and AI Spend will start monitoring them as well.

I’m confident that AI Spend will be a game-changer for all AI enthusiasts looking for a hassle-free way to monitor their API usage. While I’ve focused on making the platform user friendly, I’d love to hear your feedback on how to make AI Spend even better. Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
