The company had introduced Mi Pay in China as well in 2016 and followed that with the launch of a beta trial in India. After completing the final testing now, Indian users get the complete access to Mi Pay.

Reportedly, the platform has been built on the UPI (Unified Payments Interface) in partnership with ICICI bank and National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), supporting over 120 banks as well. The service includes prompt transfers between peer-to-peer and other Mi Pay users or bank accounts. It is significantly integrated with MIUI and allows for quick payments from other native Xiaomi apps which include contacts, scanner and SMS.

Xiaomi would supposedly focus on common digital payment use cases, through which Mi pay users will now be able to pay for services like water, gas, electricity, TV providers and phone bills. According to the reports, Xiaomi’s website will get Mi Pay support as well and other popular broadband providers such as Asianet, Hathway and Nextra Broadband have already supported by Xiaomi.
