Mi Credit is providing you the loan on 1.3% to 2.5% interest rates with 36 months of tenure which is satisfactory as compared to other digital financial company’s interest rate. We researched about the interest rates of other competitors of Mi Credit and we got that Indiabulls Dhani charges interest rates from 1% to 3.17% with the tenure of 36 months, LazyPay charges interest rates from 1.25% to 2.3% with the tenure of 24 months and KreditBee charges interest rates from 2% to 3% with a tenure of just 6 months, that means in the category of Interest rates, Mi Credit providing us the best facility.
Note: The EMI paying date on Mi Credit is 5th of every month.
Availability Of Mi Credit Service
Where the top other competitors of Mi Credit Service such as Indiabulls Dhani and LazyPay providing their services on both the iOS and Android platforms, Mi Credit is available only to MIUI users even not for all android users which is totally a minus point. There are lots of competitors in the market that can take advantage of this, so Xiaomi has to take a step for this. Although as per a report, Xiaomi will release this service for all android users very soon and the testing version is already released, so if you don’t want to wait to use this service on your non-Xiaomi smartphone, so you can download the Apk File of Mi Credit Application from here. But remember it is not a stable version so you can face problems.
Future Of Mi Credit
In a market where many digital and non-digital finance companies are already providing their best services to customers, a new company can take a little extra effort and a little extra time to make its place. If seen, Xiaomi has succeeded in doing this, many times before but this time the situation is different this time Xiaomi launched its credit service with limited features, so it can be a bit difficult at the beginning. Where other companies in the field of finance are offering options such as “Purchase Now, Pay Later” to customers, Mi Credit doesn’t have any option like this so that customers are attracted. Although the low-interest rate is a plus point of Mi Credit, but still leaving behind those competing companies that have been tie up with many big companies, it will be very difficult. However, if we talk about a conclusion then my Opinion is that Xiaomi’s Mi Credit service will prove successful in the market and among consumers.
