Problem adding PayPal

I am trying to add PayPal as a payment option, however, when I enter my account and password, it demands that I link a credit card to the paypal account. 

I currently have a positive balance on my paypal account, and have no desire to link it to a credit card.

Why can I not add the account?

Is the credit card valid, from a major provider, activated, approved for online purchases and recurring billing?

Did this solve your problem?

there is no credit card.  that's the issue.  I want to use paypal, in lieu of using a credit card.  i have money on my pay pal account, and want to pay with that - but it's not letting me add it as a payment option, as it claims i need to add a credit card "to complete the purchase."  Note, no purchase is being made, i'm simply trying to add paypal as a payment option to buy xbox live points.
