Infinix mobile finally dives into online shopping with X-Mall in Kenya

The Infinix X-mall will be moving to Uganda after Kenya on 3rd September

XMall is an all new redefined online shopping mall as the name sounds. Monitored and foreseen by Africas fastest growing smartphone distributor, Infinix mobile has dived into the e-commerce world with this single banger in Africa. Joining Jumia, Kilimall and several online shopping websites, X-mall has a variety of products up for grabs similar to its competing brands.

Infinix mobile is a company that has not lashed out to the top-notch competitor with a big blow but has impacted the market with better devices & solutions. As we speak, X-mall which was an Xclub product will now be retailing various Infinix devices & accessories online.

Infinix mall as you can probably call it will feature multiple brands retailing their products right on X-mall. While the brand previously had a few brawls with Jumia in Kenya. Isabella He ___the X-Mall operations manager inked that East Africa and basically Kenya for the start will be the 2nd African market to host the platform.

Just like any other online shopping website making rounds in Africa, X-Mall will offer mindblowing discounts on several devices & accessories including Infinix smartphones, Infinix-branded accessories together third-party accessories such as power banks, earphones, headphones and wearables from select brands. Isabella confirmed to TechWeez that Oraimo will be one of those brands to co-feature their products on X-Mall as she said.

We only have one merchant on our platform but we’re looking to see if we can bring onboard other merchants as well, only if they offer quality products

Quality is first, but we still have to be competitive in price. Aside from stocking only original Infinix products and accessories, which means our customers can trust us, we will obey the set recommended retail prices

The Online shopping experience with Infinix X-Mall

Jumia, Kilimall, Gearbeast together with all Africa operating shopping websites must be on a hunt now as Infinix seems focused on turning X-mall into a market for all smartphone geeks. However, the Mall operations manager further inked that they’re not here to compete but rather to provide the best services on market. In reply to the Jumia blow that Infinix Kenya has always had with Jumia for selling their devices cheaply, Isabella confirmed that they will continue retailing all Infinix products on the different shopping websites in East Africa.

 

At this juncture, one may wonder Why did Infinix dive into e-commerce with an online shopping website? Well, X-Mall has always been that one option in Xclub with all these sorts of devices and accessories. However, officials confirmed that Infinix will be offering the best quality devices and with multiple payment gateways like M-Pesa, Mtn mobile money adding on the usual cash on delivery options. Therefore as Infinix still battles with several competing brands in the same square like Tecno, Itel, and Oraimo. X-mall may soon be that virtual outlet everyone has yearned to see over time as we are yet to see an articipated Uganda launch as well reminding us of the Kenyan tomorrow on September 3rd, 2018.
