bKash, a mobile financial service provider in the country, has reduced the "Cash Out" charge to make customer transactions more affordable.
They can now cash out up to Tk 25,000 per month from a favourite agent (Priyo Agent) at a reduced charge of Tk 14.90 per thousand.
This includes all costs, including VAT, and customers need not pay any extra charge, said a release on Friday.
Any of bKash’s 55 million customers can now enjoy the reduced cash out charge.
Recent analysis on bKash transactions shows that 95% customers 'cash out' within 25,000 Taka per month.
Keeping that in mind, bKash has come up with this reduced charge to ensure a more affordable service marking its 10th anniversary.
To avail this service, a customer has to add a favourite bKash agent number. If needed, that can be changed at the end of each calendar month.
To add a favorite agent number, a customer needs to follow a few simple steps after tapping on the ‘cash out’ icon from the home screen of bKash app.
Customers can also add a ‘Priyo Agent’ through dialing USSD code *247# and selecting 'Priyo Number' from 'My bKash' menu.
