Shopee launches Xiaomi Official Store, holds April 4 flash sale of Redmi 5 for only P5,990
You can now buy Xiaomi products at Shopee. A partnership between the e-commerce platform Shopee and popular Chinese device maker Xiaomi now lets the 11 million Shopee users access to Xiaomi products – from smartphones and power banks to travel bags and rice cookers – via the Shopee mobile app. Remember that Xiaomi fans continued to buy Xiaomi products via parallel import, even when Xiaomi’s official presence in the country vanished in 2016. This may be a boost to Shopee’s growing number of users.
