Can't make Payment Requests

So apparently after using Payoneer for over 3 months they have decided that my business is not allowed to receive payments and should not have been authorized to do so in the first place. I find this very discriminatory considering we aren't doing anything illegal and can back everything we are doing. Plus we have gone through all of the authorization and permission levels and have been actively using this program for how do i receive my payments from our clients? Not impressed at all.....
