There are a few reasons why your card payment didn’t go through.

PayPal's process for accepting debit and credit card payments is rigorous. This helps prevent people from paying for things with stolen or unauthorized cards. The screening process is complex and, on rare occasions, it will impact valid cards.

If you know your card is valid but your payment still doesn’t go through, we suggest that you try another card or try your transaction again later.

You could also link other payments methods. With PayPal, you can use your bank account or credit cards like Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express card.
If you want to change your payment method, go to PayPal and sign in with your account. Then go to Wallet -> Payment Methods and select the one you would like to use for payments.

An alternative is to use your PayPal account balance as a payment method. In order to do that, you will need to have PayPal Cash or PayPal Cash Plus account linked to your Personal account. For more information on how to do this, go to PayPal and follow up the instructions there. Paypal-> Using your Balance
