Please, try to add your payment card to Google Play with my instructions:

  1. Go to play.google.com
  2. At the top right, click your profile icon.
  3. Select Payments & Subscriptions. Payment Methods.
  4. Select Add a Payment Method.
  5. Follow the steps on the screen. The new payment method will be added to your Google account.
