You can't add a local bank account / debit card in your country.
You can only link a credit card.
The only exception is Paypal allow a U.S bank account to be linked to most countries paypal accounts. This is because Paypal is a U.S company.

The option to receive paypal payments is sadly not available in the British Virgin Islands.
You can only send payments for purchases funded by your (confirmed) credit card.

Paypal varies a lot country to country and can only offer the services that the banks / governments of that country allow it to offer.
There are quite a few countries unable to receive paypal payments.

hnRe: Do not have add a bank account option

Thank you so much for that information. Another question, I have a Banco Popular account and visa debit card, would I be able to get connected that way?
