Xiaomi has partnered with Smartbox, a digital parcel locker company to offer delivery option to buyers on its own e-commerce site – Mi.com.
Currently starting this with only Delhi/NCR, the service will expand to other cities too. This new smart delivery allows users to opt for a smartbox delivery and get their parcels delivered to a digital locker near their location. The locker can be accessed with a unique OTP and users can pick up their purchase anytime as per their convenience within 72 hours.
The process is simple, once the order is delivered, the buyer will receive an OTP. To collect the order, the buyer needs to keyin his/her registered phone number and OTP on the Smart Box display screen. A word of caution here, if the order is not collected within 72 hours, the same will be returned back. As an option you can also have the order collected by your trusted reference by providing all the necessary details like your registered phone number and OTP.
Already e-commerce site, Flipkart uses Smartbox for its deliveries.
