The management company cannot make any changes during the lease term unless (a) you agree to them and (b) you get something in exchange for accepting the change. They can offer tenants the option of paying online and charge a convenience fee for people who want to take advantage of the service. But it's not really a convenience if you don't want to pay your rent online, and there's nothing in the law that would allow them to require you to do so unless it's already in your lease. Double-check your lease to see what it says about accepted payment methods.
