Thank you for your inquiry.

However, we are sorry that there is no standing ticket for sale on G230. You may change another train instead. If you do need G230, you may try to check if there are still seat for sale from its beginning station 'Shanghai'. If yes, you can buy a ticket from Shanghai but board from Nanjing. Hope this information can help you.
