Welcome to PayPal's Community Forum! It sounds like you're running into a few issues with your newly added bank account, and I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. In Israel, the option to add money to your PayPal balance using a local bank or card is unavailable at this time. If you have a US bank account, you'll see the option to add money. You also cannot set a preferred payment method, but you can change select your desired financial instrument each time you make a payment.
I hope you find this information useful!
