I'm trying to get Crunchyroll Premium, but since I don't have a credit card, I used my PayPal. It asked me to put a credit card on my PayPal.
I recently learned that this is because Crunchyroll does recurring payments while PayPal is more for just flat out buying stuff (works for Spotify, though). I read from a comment from Customer Service on a similar forum post to this one back in 2014 that you can buy gift membership using PayPal without a credit card. Went to the store, put the 1 month premium membership in my cart, went to checkout, selected PayPal, and then it asked for a credit card.
Does anybody know any current methods to get Premium using PayPal without a credit card?

Is your PayPal linked to a debit card? Does PayPal have permission to take money from that?
Did you ever have a payment fail via PayPal?

My PayPal is linked to my bank, but not to any cards. I moved $7 from my bank into my PayPal for the purpose of Crunchyroll Premium, it just arrived in there today. Is there no way to do this without linking a card of some kind to my PayPal?

Recurring payments only work if some sort debit card or bank account is linked to the PayPal account, and PayPal has permission to charge that card/bank account. An account with just PayPal balance will not work.
