You are in the Russian Federation.
After you add a credit card to your PayPal account, PayPal will attempt to validate the card, with one or two temporary charges. It may take some days for that validation.
Since you joined eBay on Jul-24-12, that validation process may still be ongoing.
Suggest you log into PayPal, and see if your card or bank account or other payment method has been accepted.

you only have to open your Ebay account from a google chrome incognito window and then Paypal let them pay normally. Good luck to all.

Clear cache and cookies and try again.
Assuming you have an active PayPal account that is correctly set up.
Sometimes eBay Checkout is glitchy.
If you have never used your PayPal account, you might call them to make sure you set it up correctly.
