You can't add a local bank account in your country.
You can add a linked card.

The only exception is U.S expats can add their bank accounts to other countries paypal accounts (paypal is a U.S company so they allow their citizens to do this).

Click on the link below and select the country you want from the drop down list for options available in that country.

In jamaica you have some option also to open a u.s. account at certain branches. Maybe that would help.

No, it won't, at least not for Paypal

Unfortunately, Paypal doesn't offer good services to Jamaicans. You can not add a jamaica bank account to PayPal and you can not add a US bank account either if you're Jamaican. The only option is through a cheque or sending the money to someone else and asking them to withdraw for you.

You can use a U.S bank account in your country as long as its not a virtual / digital bank.

Click on drop down list and select your country in the link.
