link account to paypal without bank account or credit card

Question

You can't.  Linden Lab only accepts a "verified" PayPal account, which means the account is backed up by a bank account or credit card.  Moreover, they insist on a credit card being used to back the account, whether it is a "stand alone" card or one issued as part of your bank account's services.

If you can't get a verified PayPal account, you can still purchase $L through one of the authorized resellers.  They will often take payment methods that LL won't accept.  But, you can't use the authorized resellers to sell any excess $L.  You can only do that by using a PayPal account and the official Linden Exchange.

Here's the way Linden Lab describes its policy:

Often the initial agreement can't be set up due to an unverified PayPal account. To use your PayPal account with Linden Lab, it must be verified and be capable of making instant transfers.

Linden Lab does not accept e-check (bank account) payments through PayPal because they cannot be processed quickly enough to match the instant delivery of virtual goods and services.  Therefore, we require that you have a credit card on file with PayPal as a backup payment source, OR that you pay with your PayPal balance in USD. Without a sufficient USD balance in your PayPal account, you will not be able to use it with only a bank account.

So, your PayPal account must be verified either by having a credit card or a bank account to support it. Your best choice may be to use a bank account, because it is only used as a means of verifying your PayPal.  If your PayPal account has a bank account as a backup source, Linden Lab will never draw on that bank account anyway. Once the PayPal account is verified, all you need to do is have enough cash in the PayPal account to cover your L$ purchases.
