Ever since entering the Indian smartphone market, Xiaomi has seen a good growth with its best-selling smartphones. In the past one year, the Chinese company has worked towards improving its service by opening a number of service centers, offering door-to-door pick-up and drop service, and more. Now, it seems like Xiaomi wants to offer a better buying experience to its customers with the launch of the new Express Delivery service.
The Express Delivery service is available in India for all orders placed on Mi.com/in and on the Mi Store app. With the service, Xiaomi will deliver orders within a single day at no additional costs. To begin with, the service is currently available for select pin codes in Bengaluru.
If your pin code is covered in Xiaomi’s service area, you will see the new ‘Express Delivery’ option on the company’s ‘Order Information’ page. Similarly, if you are using the Mi Store app to place the order, you’ll need to tap on the ‘Delivery Service’ option while checking out. If eligible, you will see the ‘Express Delivery’ option, where you need to tap on ‘Confirm’ after which your order will be delivered using the new service.
However, there are a few caveats related to the service. To begin with, the service is not available on Sundays. Secondly, you need to order between 9AM and 4:30PM to be eligible for one-day express delivery of your orders. Lastly, the service is only available when you buy eligible products, which includes the Redmi 4, the Redmi 5A, the Redmi Y1, Redmi Note 4, Mi Max 2 and the Mi A1.
Besides this, Xiaomi also recently started Mi Bunny, a WhatsApp-based free subscription service for Mi Fans in India. It is designed to offer users with instant updates about new product launches, deals and upcoming Mi events.
