It was last Wednesday (August 4) that the management of the Mi Store Portugal stores sent a press release to the press in which they reported on the possibility of acquiring Xiaomi smartphones and products with payment to be made in cryptocurrencies.
It would be an unprecedented possibility in Portugal and still rare in other global markets. However, the same Mi Store Portugal informed the media today that, after all, they will not accept payments with cryptocurrencies on the official website and store.
Forget about paying with cryptocurrencies in Mi Store Portugal
Xiaomi Global vetoed payments with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, Dash or Token Utrust
“On behalf of Mi Store Portugal, we inform you that we will backtrack with the offer of the payment option in cryptocurrencies. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
This offer was made suddenly without prior approval from Xiaomi Global and it did not go through the proper regulatory channels and processes. We regret any widespread misinformation or negative impact on all parties involved.
We will strive to continue offering an excellent customer experience and the best service to Xiaomi fans. ”- Mi Store Portugal.
As the original article is written, it would be possible to use cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, Dash or Token Utrust. However, given the statements presented above, they can rule out such a possibility in Portugal.
The consumer is thus left with the means previously available, namely: Splitit, MB Way, ATM, PayPal, credit card, bank transfer or purchase in installments.
Finally, We refer you to the customer service page of the official store, with more information about the purchase process and the respective payment methods available.
