Can you buy APC postage in one zip code and mail it in another?  The only post offices that have APC are not really convenient to stop at every day, but I really want to avoid the post office if possible.

I've done it before.  I live 30 miles or so from the post office w/APC postage, bought it there, and mailed from home

I was told at my PO that you are "supposed to" mail APC'd packages from the zip code purchased - apparently an internal PO auditing issue?

I do this all the time because I buy postage at the APC in the town where I work but always mail books from home...and my home and work are 2 different zip codes.
