Permission to pay your money, please!

I’m trying to pay a SaaS bill online, and I run into the following issue. I have insufficient permissions to pay the invoice on the account. No insufficient funds, which is something that you’ll routinely run into when dealing with payment processing. But insufficient permissions!

Is… paying something an act that requires permissions? That something that happens? Can I get more vulnerabilities like that? When I get people to drive-by pay for my bills?

I can’t think of a scenario where you are prevented from paying to the provider. That is… weird.

And now I’m in this “nice” position where I have to chase after the provider to give them money, because otherwise they’ll close the account.
