Flipkart is no more Xiaomi’s exclusive seller
Xiaomi has ended its partnership with Flipkart. Flipkart is no more an exclusive seller of Xiaomi in India. To expand its business and fulfill the increasing demands, Xiaomi has planned to move on and sign up with Snapdeal as well as Amazon.
It is said that Xiaomi was pretty unhappy with the way Flipkart used to handle its orders. With the increase in number of bad customer reviews and unhappy customers, Xiaomi has planned to shift and test the other biggies of India as well. Having become a relatively big player in the Indian smartphone market, Xiaomi probably feels that it can move forward without Flipkart’s help.
Xiaomi joined the Indian mobile market in July 2014. Even with its Chinese logo, and a yet to build reputation, it gained a huge amount of support from the Indian users. Since then, it has released many different models like Redmi 1S, Mi3, Note 4G, Mi4 etc, which attracted a large amount of audience and broke many sales records. The company is looking forward to grow even more after signing up with Snapdeal and Amazon.
We are excited to partner with Xiaomi to launch its highly sought-after range of smartphones and accessories to our customers across the country. We believe that the extensive delivery network panning across Tier-2 and-3 cities and towns of India will be of great value to Xiaomi in reaching out to a segment of consumers seeking true value in their devices.

The Mi Store is said to go live on Snapdeal and Amazon today onwards. This is a big opportunity for Snapdeal to get in line with the other 2 websites. Let’s see what effect does Xiaomi bring to the sales of Snapdeal. Will it break more records and reach new heights? Guess, is all we can do right now.
