Positive test a few hours later?

Vinted

Had this happened to anyone? I posted 2 parcels at the same time and got 1 receipt. The guy said both parcels were on the one receipt. Silly me didn’t even look. Now one parcel has updated and is on the way the other one hasn’t. Could I go back and get another receipt? I saw him put the sticker on the parcel so 🤷🏽‍♀️
