New Delhi, India, March 24, 2015: Xiaomi Redmi 1s fans have a reason to cheer: they can now get the popular smartphone even cheaper than that offered on Flipkart as the most trusted name in refurbished markets – GreenDust will be conducting a flash sale to sell the refurbished & unboxed product of the Chinese handset manufacturer.
GreenDust, is India’s largest and most trusted online store to sell open-box, refurbished, factory seconds, and surplus products. GreenDust’s reverse logistics engine is used by most manufacturers and e-commerce companies in India today and its “GreenDust Certified” seal is becoming a seal of approval in the often shady market of refurbished products.
The models that will be sold will either be seal-opened but unused, or have some software issues which are fixed by Xiaomi later, hence would be refurbished. GreenDust will hold flash sales of the Redmi 1S smartphones on March 26, where a few thousand units will be put up for sale on GreenDust.com. Due to limited stocks, GreenDust is allowing pre-ordering on its site www.greendust.com and has seen huge response from customers.
Open-box or unboxed phone will be sold for Rs 4,999 while the refurbished version will come with a price tag of Rs 4,599 a piece, with separate flash sales for both kinds. Both type of phones will have a six month warranty from the manufacturer.
“We’re looking at the possibility of having a model where GreenDust becomes a channel that brands and e-commerce companies can use to manage sale of their returned products while maximizing returns rather than using the unorganized sector and fly-by-night operators for liquidation which is fraught with risks.” said Hitendra Chaturvedi, Founder & CEO, GreenDust.
“If this pilot is successful, we will execute ALL our flash sales with such amazing products at amazing price ONLY through our mobile app – a first in India,” he added.
All refurbishments are conducted by official Xiaomi service partners. All products will be covered by GreenDust’s no question asked 15-day return guarantee and a six-month Xiaomi warranty.
Xiaomi Redmi 1S features dual-SIM support, 4.7-inch HD IPS display, 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The phone also packs 2000 mAh battery, 8MP rear camera, 1.6MP front shooter, and Android 4.3-based MIUI v5.
