On 30th June 2016, Xiaomi and MobiKwik came together to create history. The technological revolution happening in India has made life easier for many. And to take it further, this partnership will allow Xiaomi users to make seamless payments on Mi Phones using the MobiKwik wallet.
What’s new in it?
Launched with Xiaomi MIUI8, the feature allows users to pay bills and recharge their phones or DTH connections from within the messaging application. When a user receives a message from their telecom or DTH operator regarding low balance or bill payment, just below the same they will have a ‘recharge now’ button for instant recharge through MobiKwik. The existing Mi users can also benefit from the feature when they upgrade to MIUI8.
The “Recharge” call to action embedded right next to the SMS and allows users to complete the online recharge without having to navigate or install different apps. It also enables users to pay their bills on time, who generally forget the due dates and find the whole exercise cumbersome. Customers can also sync the MobiKwik account with the Mi Account thereby achieving “One Click Recharge” which again is a great customer experience.
“With this initiative, we take a leap in giving users a seamless recharge and payments experience. This pioneering association with Xiaomi is a step towards Internet businesses collaborating to create the best experiences for the user.”- Mrinal Sinha, Chief Operating Office, MobiKwik said.
Also, new users will get a special 50% cashback on their first Mobikwik recharge, and existing Mobikwik customers will get a 10 percent cashback on their first recharge every month.
Users can do online recharge, pay postpaid bills for airtel, Vodafone, idea, reliance, tata, uninor and recharge the DTH for Tata Sky, Dish TV, Videocon D2H, Sun TV, Airtel DTH and all other operators.
