Just guessing, but I would imagine many OTAs run on razor thin margins and survive on volume and some of them sketchy/limited support. If there are a tsunami of cancellations around the place over the coming quarter then I expect the cash-flow cupboard will run bare and one or more may go under.

From a vague memory, there are reports elsewhere on AFF of a different OTA that went under where passengers hadn't been ticketed and refused boarding by the airlines.
Interesting theory that will be interesting to watch how it plays out.

And you are probably thinking about BestJet that collapsed in Dec 2018.

I want to wrap this up - ultimately I did receive the tickets, they did work, and despite the communication issues, all flights went ahead as expected. Contrary to what I wrote above, I would buy tickets through this company again, if I felt sure I wouldn't need any changes or to cancel.

Good to see an OP concluding the story. And nice to know it was all OK.
