As is the case with any payment service that get launched or introduced for the first time, its payment services will be limited initially. However, that also means that Xiaomi will gradually expand the payment services to include a wider range of banks and users.

The numbers also point to the scope of massive growth that might take place within just four years. Bansal went on to mention that the launch of Xiaomi’s NFC straps may also result in more people opting for cashless online payments in the future.
