Greetings, oneshot1tkill! This sticky will shed some light over payment method configuration: forums.xbox.com/.../153161.aspx. Specificially:
 

"In order to properly use your PayPal account, it must either have a valid credit card attached to it or a positive money balance. If you have an attached bank account and are still having trouble adding/using your PayPal method, try transferring some money from the bank account to PayPal so the PayPal account actually has a positive balance."
 

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any further questions.

That might be a question for Paypal - Have you used the bank account attached before for any other transactions?
