"It" won't let you buy L$ with a PayPal account or a card until you have registered them as payment methods with Linden Lab.  See https://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Billing/ta-p/700037#Section_.2.1

Note that many (most?) debit cards won't work in SL.  You really should use a credit card. 

Note also that 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, Linden Lab requires 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.
