Paypal is blocked here in Turkey. What should I do to pay the premium charge?

VPN is not an option in payment situations due to billing address requirement. Paypal block in Turkey is not implemented as a censorship, it has to do with taxation disagreement with Turkish government and enforced by Paypal itself, as in you cannot enter a Turkish billing address.

Explain please to me why you shouldn't be able to use a billing address at
a location different to the one that the IP will tell? I don't understand why
you couldn't be on a trip to another country physically, but give a billing
address in you homeland. I never use PayPal myself, so please tell me.

In this case, I would need to do the opposite of what you described, and guess what, Paypal does not accept a Turkish credit card with a Greek phone number.
