Xiaomi Is a well Known Smartphone Manufacture company in India. And now, the company is trying to boost online and offline sale even further with a new trade-in program called Mi Exchange Program.
Mi Exchange is a partnership between Xiaomi and Cashify that lets customers exchange their old phones for new Xiaomi devices. In an announcement on Wednesday, the smartphone maker said that customers can visit a Mi Home store to take advantage of Mi Exchange and that only one device from Cashify’s portfolio can be traded in at a time.
Mi Exchange customers can also opt for Cashify’s pickup service. They have to pay full price for a new Xiaomi phone at the time of purchase, but they don’t have to visit a Mi Home store to trade in their old phone. Once they schedule a call with Cashify, an employee will come by to collect the phone and pay what it’s worth.
