It won't show the amount of the card on the balance. You just got to go with what you got. Try buying something.

Your card issuer denied this payment. If you have another debit or credit card linked to your PayPal account, please use that. Or take a moment to link a new debit or credit card. Contact your card issuer if you don't know why you were declined.
