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.
