Add the Card to your PayPal account as a Visa card or checkout items by using the card the same way you would use a Visa Card. Putting Money on the O2 card doesn't top up your PayPal, it just tops up the card.

Because the payment/balance is coming from the 02 card not paypal. The card payment is only processed via paypal.To top up a PayPal balance you have to transfer funds to the PayPal account and not a prepaid card.

By adding a bank account, and then transferring money from said account to your PayPal account. You can't top up your PayPal balance using credit/debit cards, only by bank transfer.
