Marseilles to Barcelona reservations - only available in paper form. Alternatives?

Hi, I’m going interrailing for the first time next week. One journey we are trying to find a way to book is Marseilles → Barcelona on August 10th, but we are struggling to do so because it seems like we can only book a paper ticket. We are leaving the country on Tuesday though and it says it will take 2 weeks to be delivered, which is obviously when we won’t be home. Can we just book a ticket when we arrive in Marseilles on July 6th, or will this be too late? Thanks.

Any advice?

Call SNCF ASAP to book, since available pass holder seats are limited. Press #85 for English, no booking fees, reservations will be sent via e-mail.

Alternatively, reservation-free journeys via Portbou are also possible.
