Adding PayPAL as a payment option wants to 'Link a new debit or credit card to make an instant payment'

What type of payment method are you trying to add?


What error code or message are you receiving? 

None. I get asked to link a credit card.

What region is your account set to? 


What region do you physically connect from?


What region is your payment method's billing address in?


As the title says. I want to add my PayPal account, but when I do that I am required to link to a new credit card. My PayPAL balance is positive, and I have a confirmed (primary) bank account on PayPal itself. If have changed my Xbox LIVE name to match my PayPal account's.

You really don't want my money, do you?

To add your PayPal account as a payment option on your Xbox LIVE account, see Manage your Xbox LIVE payment options.

If you receive an Error: 8382025C the PayPal account you are trying to add is not supported. Xbox LIVE only supports PayPal accounts that have a credit card or confirmed bank account as a funding source. Update your PayPal account with one of these funding sources, or try using a different PayPal account.
