Passengers who purchase tickets online can conduct e-ticket changing or refund before changing it to a paper ticket, but this should be done at least two hours before the train departs.

If a passenger has changed the e-ticket into a paper ticket, he must go through the above procedures at the ticket-changing or departure station. Only one ticket change can be conducted no matter the ticket is bought online or at a railway station.
