Xiaomi's crowdfunding products beyond China

Xiaomi has long been known for selling not only smartphones, but also, in some cases, bizarre gadgets and home accessories, such as Segway Gokart/Scooters.

Until now, all of these products have only been available to Chinese people through their own crowdfunding platform called Xiaomi YouPin. However, Xiaomi also brings these products beyond China through Xiaomi Crowdfunding.com.

Innovations Beyond Borders

xiaomicrowdfunding.com is a completely new cross-border e-commerce platform. Through it, Xiaomi wants to offer users outside the Chinese mainland convenient and cost effective a way to buy ecosystem products that were previously only available in China through the YouPin platform.

In addition to associating a strong Xiaomi community, Xiaomi Crowdfunding.com also serves as test soil for key markets, allowing Xiaomi to learn more about local demand for different types of products.
