Chinese handset-maker Xiaomi is opening its first official online store in the United States and Europe: Mi.com.

The e-commerce site is set to open in the U.S. on June 1, and in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany a day later. It will offer many of the company’s hardware accessories, including the Mi Power Bank battery charger, Mi Headphones, and Mi Band wearable device-cum-fitness tracker.

“We pride ourselves on making high-­quality products available at incredible prices, and I’m truly excited to bring a selection of our best-­selling accessories to fans in the U.S. and Europe,” said Xiaomi global vice president Hugo Barra in a statement. “We believe that Mi fans will have a great experience with these products, and we look forward to bringing more Mi products over time to the U.S. and Europe.”

The company writes that Xiaomi offers a return policy for unsatisfied customers, as long as they return a product within a certain unspecified number of days.

Worth a reported $46 billion, Xiaomi is the world’s leading “unicorn“—a private company valued at more than $1 billion.
