Xiaomi products will be available offline soon




Xiaomi products are currently available through online shopping site, Lazada. Lots of customers though have been requesting that Xiaomi makes its products offline. Well, there’s good news as Mi Philippines has announced that Mi products will soon be available through Xiaomi’s official offline partner.

There’s a trade-off though as going offline means that Xiaomi will incur additional operational expenses which will force them to increase their prices. In addition, certain government regulations prevent them from having different prices for online and offline, and as a result, Xiaomi will just maintain offline prices across all selling channels.


 

To put it simply, Mi products will soon be more expensive compared to their usual online prices. One example is the Mi In-Ear Headphones which now has a bumped up price of Php849 from Php695. But on the bright side, you may soon buy Mi products in physical stores if you don’t like ordering through Lazada.

    ipapaubos na nila ang old stocks ng 2year old phones nila. Tapos mas mahal pa. Hello alcatel :D

    Sa pagsikat nila sa buong mundo, unti unti na nilang itinataas ang presyo. Ayon sa tsismis ang next flagship nilang ilalabas ay umaabot sa $480 na raw. Di magtatagal papantay na iyan sa sony, samsung at sa iba pang kilalang brand. Pero huwag mag alala dahil muling may lilitaw na mura at maasahan na pagbabalingan ng tao. Ewan lang iyang alcatel dahil iisa lang yata sila ng tcl.

    That’s good. A lot of Filipinos prefer offline shopping rather than in online. Yan kasi sa typical na pinoy eh, daming dada. Kaya wala asenso sa bansa niyo eh.

    minsan kasi ang problema, una, yung mode of payment, marami ang wala namang credit card at hindi naman lahat ng items pwede ang COD.

    Ikalawa, hassle ang pagbabalik ng items kapag defective, unlike sa physical stores, na doon mismo mate-test mo ang items for defects.

    although for instance in Lazada, one time nag-order ako ng asus fonepad tab, pagreceive ko na unit defective pala, ibinalik ko pa buti free return shipping.

    opinion ko lang naman po.

    Ang credit card yata ay pinagandang salita lang ng utang?

    I only had one problem with lazada, they cancelled my order due to failure of delivery. Buti na lang cod.

    Online transaction is swift mode of shopping. The problem is, for young working Filipinos like me, we have cash on hand at our disposal so we dont need credit card at all. Mas may kumpyansa pa rin ako pagnahawakan at natest ko yung product, let say, i can justify and decide instantly if the product is for me or not.
