Xiaomi has just debuted a new e-commerce platform in India, that will let users purchase ecosystem devices and products that are only available in China. Xiaomi has fueled the ShareSave app with an array of products from Water Bootles, to Toothbrushers, Desk Lamps, and Smart Bulbs. With the new platform release on one of its most important markets, Xiaomi wants to catapult the sales of its ecosystem products.
While the ShareSave app is landing in India first, more markets will follow soon. Amazon might already carry some of these products, but there are some import fees that are passed to the customers. Through the new platform, users will be able to buy goods with plenty of possibilities to save on the cost of the product.

There are multiple purchase modes that will allow you to save more money. “Pair-Up” will get you and another “friend” a discount for buying another of the same item. “Drop” mode lets you save up to the entire cost of the product if you manage to get enough of your friends purchase the same product. Last, but not least, there is the “Kickstart” mode that lets you contribute an amount to a startup item so you can get up to 10 times the amount back when the item is fully funded.
“With its unique ecosystem model, Xiaomi has currently incubated and partnered with more than 100 IoT and lifestyle companies. With more than 132 million connected devices (excluding smartphones and laptops), Xiaomi has the world’s largest consumer IoT platform.”
Through the new platform, users will be able to enjoy some products from China with full local support. Since the platform has just been released, you may not find what you’re looking right away. The app is available on PlayStore if you’re India.
