Xiaomi has announced its cross-border e-commerce platform called ShareSave. This platform will let users outside of China have easy access to Xiaomi’s China-exclusive products. While ShareSave is available to Indian users currently, Xiaomi also plans to launch the e-commerce platform in the other markets soon. Additionally, ShareSave will provide doorstep delivery and after-sales service. While e-commerce like AliExpress, Banggood, Gearbest and more have so far facilitated the purchase of various Xiaomi and other Chinese products for users in other countries, the newly launched platform will facilitate ordering Xiaomi products directly from the brand.
