So bitpay recently changed their payment protocol making it impossible for me to pay bitpay invoices by sending a direct payment to the address through my blockchain wallet. However, I read on the internet bitpay is doing this and blocking vpn payments so they can see your IP address. Is there a work around for me to pay off a bitpay invoice without revealing my IP?

Can't say I know much about this but as far as I know, they can't block ALL VPN services since they'll have to filter manually. Have you actually tried using VPN to access their payment protocol? What's to prevent you from using a remote machine? Or, if desperate, go to a public wifi, pay the invoice through your mobile.

More to the issue: time for you to ditch Bitpay. Not allowing people to send direct payments defeats the purpose of using Bitcoin. What's the point?

I'm not sure what the problem could be, but i always use a VPN when doing transactions with them, and i never had a problem. I just tested it again while connected to PIA, and all the adress and balances to send to X adress showed perfectly fine. Which VPN are you using?

Could you maybe post some sort of screenshots of the problem you are facing?
Also, i'm pretty curious where you read that they are blocking payments coming from people using VPN's.

I did, and it worked perfectly fine ?

the change you said probably protocol change to QR based payment.
check this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2736694.msg28002200#msg28002200
I don't think it has anything to do with blocking vpn and spying on your IP
