Paywast, Afghanistan’s first and largest provider of social media launched its BOL App, the currency exchange rate service, on September 15th, 2015. The word BOL comes from a circle of currency traders in Sarai Shahzada which sets the currency market rates in Afghanistan.
BOL rates are updated almost every minute during trading hours. BOL provides current information about currency exchange rates of major global currencies for the Afghan currency market in real-time to its users. BOL services are available in a mobile app for Android phones, which can be downloaded worldwide from www.bol.af and from the Google Play app store. Users can also register to BOL https://www.bol.af/home/reg_en and get free Tazmeen vouchers to sign up on BOL subscription plans.
Users in Afghanistan can furthermore get the latest currency rates from the BOLSMS service by sending T to 729 from major mobile operators in Afghanistan. Currently BOL services are accessible via SMS and over 70,000 users across Afghanistan are using the service continuously.
BOL app enables users to get all the real-time exchange rates between AFN and USD, EUR, IRR, PKR, INR, AED, GBP, SAR and calculate between specific amounts instantly. BOL allows users to view graphs with the development in exchange rates over time and pull up tables with a full overview of all current exchange rates. BOL users can save time and money by using BOL App instead of making a phone call every time they need to know the rates. Further information can be found on BOL website www.bol.af.
