Xiaomi’s beta accessory store will begin sales and shipping of products from China to customers in the UK, US, France and Germany starting on the 18th May.
Xiaomi had reported earlier this year that they planned to start offering accessories to markets outside of their usual market areas, and this will all kick off next week. The Beta sales appear to be lasting just 2 days with the first starting on the 18th May and second on the 19th May.
There will only be a few accessories to choose from during the Beta stage including the Xiaomi Mi Band for $14.99, Mi Headphones for $79.99 and the popular 5000mAh and 10400mAh Xiaomi powerbanks.
For those of you wanting to take part in the sales you will need a Xiaomi account (I can confirm that your Chinese Mi Account will work if you already have one) and you should be aware that there might be added tax on the price of your products as they will ship from China. The good news is that there will be no hidden surprises as Xiaomi will calculate all of this for you at the checkout. You can see more details over on Mi.com.
