Mi Pay, A threat to Google Pay and Paytm?
The Xiaomi Mi Pay will be integrated into the MIUI (the default OS on a majority of the Xiaomi smartphones). Users are more likely to use the Xiaomi Mi Pay, instead of downloading or installing third-party UPI payments apps like Google Pay, PhonePe, and Paytm, especially on entry-level smartphones, which comes with a limited amount of RAM and storage.
Xiaomi is expected to capture a large portion of the UPI payment market if the company aggressively push the Mi Pay app in the market using different marketing tactics.
