Need credit card for PayPal

I have a problem with connecting my PayPal account to my Xbox Live account. When I try to add my PayPal account with 10 € positive balance through "add payment options" via the xbox website it says I need to attach a credit card to my account. I am over 18 years old, and the billing region and name are the same on my xbox live account and my PayPal account.

Greetings, Aerdt! Sorry you're having problems connecting your PayPal account to your Xbox LIVE account. We'll get this sorted out! Can you do me a favor and verify whether you have successfully linked and confirmed a bank account to your PayPal account? If you haven't done this step you may encounter problems connecting PayPal to your Xbox LIVE account. Let me know if that's the source of the problem. I'm here if you have any further questions.

Greetings, Aerdt. Can you confirm that you are physically located in a PayPal supported country and that your profile is also registered to that same country:  support.xbox.com/.../use-paypal ? If your profile and location do not match this criteria you will not be able to use PayPal with your account.

Greetings, Aerdt! I would log on to https://billing.microsoft.com and make sure that there are no issues with your account. If there are any problems that need to be resolved an error code should pop up. If the problem persists I would recommend getting in touch with support for your region. They will be able to work with you on a one-on-one basis to get this resolved. Sledmore, it sounds like you may have a similar situation. I would encourage you to follow the same troubleshooting steps and let us know how it goes.
