I am trying to empty my paypal acct so I've been sending some of my larger packages of books using their print and ship.  Yesterday I put the address in, and it was correct and I've sent to this gal before from there, and after I hit 'pay and print' I saw that their system had changed her street, city and zip code.  The state was the only thing correct.

Of course, I'm still waiting for their customer service to respond to me.

But I wonder, can I simply change the address on the label?  Is her address in the bar code, so that it won't go through after the PO scans it?

I do have today's date on the package so I would need to know soon so I can drop it in a box somewhere.

The zip code is normally in the bar code. If you cover or cross out the address, it may be assumed that you are forwarding the book. That could result in a postage due package.

I would go through paypal and get credit for the label and print a new one.

There is a link on PayPal for you to void a label.
