Xiaomi’s latest smartphones in India, the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro have seen successful sales since their launch last month. So much so that the smartphones have gone out of stock within minutes in each flash sale that the company has held till date. Owing to the huge demand, Xiaomi is now facing a new issue with the sale of the smartphones.

As per Xiaomi, many resellers are trying to buy the smartphones in bulk so as to be able to sell them later at a higher price when the devices are no longer available in the flash sale. In order to address the issue, Xiaomi has now removed the Cash on Delivery option on the purchase of the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro, with effect from the flash sale on March 7.
