Abstract. Ecommerce plays key role in market development. High-tech supports ecommerce as well as is the subject of sell. However, the regional military conflict such as war on Ukraine could change sellers' behavior. This paper investigates changes on Polish Allegro ecommerce trading platform before and during war periods of four weeks in the high-tech field of smartphone category. During war maintaining communication in foreign country is crucial. From this point of view Xiaomi offers were discussed by using Spearman rho coefficient. Survey revealed that some of the models of high tier smartphones like ‘11T Pro' are positively corelated (0.390), while most lower positioned devices from Redmi group are strongly and negatively correlated like ‘Redmi Note 10' (-0.881), ‘Redmi 10' (-0.829), or ‘Redmi 9A' (-0.825). Possibly explanation like migration shows moderate correlation effect of Mi smartphones offers (0.422) and Redmi sub-brand (0.518) with number of people crossing the border.
