We currently have limited customer service staffing due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) safety precautions. We encourage you to find quick answers to your questions by searching the community forum, visiting our Help Center, or messaging us (message response times will be delayed). Thank you for your patience.
Have you checked to see if there might be any unresolved issues impacting the ability to add a card? In most cases, you can find options on how to resolve these issues in the PayPal account's Resolution Center. I recommend checking there for any further details.
