You can only add a bank account to any paypal account x3 times in that banks lifetime so have you added it to your paypal account or a combination of your account and older accounts more than that?

If that is not the case check the link above and then allow 72 hours between removing and adding + clear cookies/cache and if no luck try another browser/device OR ask customer services for help to link it?

Contact options for Paypal are accessed by clicking help/contact bottom left of Paypal pages.

1. Paypal phones when available (you can use the guest option if you can't log in).
2. Live chat is also randomly available.
3. You can send them a message, during business hours you may also be able to message whilst logged out.
Or
4. Have you considered contacting Customer Service via Facebook or Twitter?
You can send them a personal message from their Facebook or Twitter pages.
It's: https://www.facebook.com/PayPal and @AskPayPal for Twitter.

Done all that and it still can't be added, now paypal are trying to say its their system saying it's a security risk which is the biggest load of rubbish I have ever heard, paypal has become a joke time to use a different payment platform
