Some 13,233 applications have been registered at Iran's forex center so far, the IRNA News Agency reported.
The foreign exchange center was officially inaugurated on September 24.
It aims at allowing importers of goods including truck tires, construction equipment and synthetic fibers to buy dollars at a rate 2 percent cheaper than the street rate at any given time.
Dollar price had reached 40,000 rials in October but by inauguration of the foreign exchange center the prices fell to 27,000 rials.
The government maintains an official reference rate of 12,260 rials to the dollar, but only a limited amount of foreign exchange is available at this rate.
