Ebay USPS label has different "from" zip code than my ship from address. Why?

When I print USPS labels they show my correct address as the from area but in the USPS area it states the date shipped, the "From " zip code, the weight, and the zone.

The "From" zip code represents a town almost 400 miles from my location. Why?

Does anyone else have this situation?

Doesn't it affect my shipping cost in some way?

It might.

The next time you create a shipping label, make the necessary corrections.

A 400-mile difference will affect the postage price for most packages sent with a zoned shipping service such as Priority Mail or Parcel Select.

 

The next time you're preparing to print a shipping label, click on the 'Change" link that appears next to the return address on the label preparation page. 

 

You should double-check the "Location" ZIP Code in your listings, too.

Change that "from" zip code so the correct post office gets credit for the packages being shipped.

 

I have about 4 post offices I can drop my packages off, depending on which way I am traveling, so I change the zip code to the correct post office zip code so they get the credit.
