便 has two pronunciations. When it appears in this term, with the meaning 'inexpensive' then the pronunciation is indeed pián yí (or pián yi). But when it appears in other compounds, such as 方便 meaning 'convenient' then it's pronounced fāng biàn. (Other notable uses all pronounced biàn: 便利商店 'convenience store'; 便服 'informal clothing'; 小便 'urine'; 大便 'faeces'.)
