The first Mi Express Kiosk has been installed at Manyata Tech Park, Bengaluru and has a wide range of products including Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro, Poco F1, Y3, Redmi Go, along with accessories such as Bluetooth speakers, battery packs, auto chargers, earphones and more.
This also seems to be a nice strategy to get some retail sales by eliminating operational and cost inefficiencies of selling products at retail stores.
The Mi Express Kiosk is created to accept all forms of payments across credit cards, debit cards, cash and UPI, making it convenient and hassle-free for customers to purchase their smartphones.
There are two ways to purchase Xiaomi's products. The company claims that Mi Express Kiosks serve as a highly effective initiative for consumers to easily access and buy Xiaomi products in the offline market. There is a large touch display on the right for operating the machine.
Xiaomi on Monday announced it is opening Mi Express Kiosks across India. The first of the Express Kiosks was introduced today in Bangalore. This hints that the phone the company will be launching soon will come with triple rear cameras.
Will this strategy work in India? But India might be a different ball game altogether. The procedure will be a little faster and you don't have to wait for your device after successful payment. Currently, these Mi Express Kiosks can be found across metro cities in public areas such as tech parks, metro stations, airports, and shopping malls. This might be an added advantage which would surely guarantee the safety of such kiosks as well as make the consumer experience easier. They are dubbed as Mi Express Kiosks.
Xiaomi is now the first technology brand in India to offer smartphones and other gadgets via a vending machine.
