Flutterwave’s Disha is set for a temporary close on March 31. No-code platform Disha, a company that helps creatives effectively market their products and also process payments, has just announced that it will be ceasing its operations on March 31, 2024, citing a temporary measure for the move.

Flutterwave purchased the firm back in 2021 and it reveals that is reportedly halting services in a bid to reassess its goals and to also explore new mediums to serve users. Hundreds of thousands of users all over after the shutdown who make use of the tools of the platform to help manage their own online presence will still have direct access to their accounts as well as stored data.

The platform has recommended its extensive user base, comprising over 100,000 creators spanning content creators, influencers, artists, writers, and designers, to transfer their files to alternative platforms like Mainstack, Milkshake, and Linktree before the scheduled shutdown date. Additionally, it encouraged users to remain connected for any further updates.

“We find joy in providing you with tools that move your craft forward, and this pause is critical in helping us rethink our focus,” Disha in a statement on X explained.  While Disha has assured that its hiatus is temporary, it has not yet specified a reopening date. Subscribers with ongoing subscriptions will receive refunds.

How Disha Operates

Established in 2019 by Evans Akanno and Rufus Oyemade, with Blessing Abeng joining as a co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer a year later, Disha operates similarly to platforms like Selar and Irawo. It provides digital creators with a platform to exhibit and sell their digital products, create one-page website portfolios, and receive payments from a global audience.

This Is the Second Time Disha Halted Its Operations

This marks the second time Disha has halted its operations. In February 2021, the Nigeria-based platform, boasting over 20,000 users, announced its closure by December 2022 due to insufficient resources to sustain operations. Prior to its closure, Flutterwave acquired the platform for an undisclosed sum.

Disha Presented an Opportunity for Flutterwave

Upon the acquisition in 2021, Olugbenga Agboola, co-founder and CEO of Flutterwave, expressed that Disha presented an opportunity for Flutterwave to penetrate new markets of independent creators in need of dependable tools to showcase their work and receive payments. Despite Flutterwave’s ambitious goals for Disha, the platform seems to have faced challenges, prompting a reevaluation.
