For the last two days, analytics within shopify indicates no (or few) visitors.
However in GA4, visits are recorded.

Any idea how I can solve this?

There could be a few reasons for the discrepancy in the number of visitors between Shopify analytics and GA4. Here are a few things you can check:

  1. Check if the Shopify tracking code is properly installed on your website. You can check this by going to your website and viewing the source code to ensure that the Shopify tracking code is present.

  2. Check if the tracking code is firing correctly. You can do this by using a browser extension like Google Tag Assistant to see if the Shopify tracking code is firing on your website.

  3. Make sure that any ad-blockers or privacy plugins are not blocking the tracking code. These plugins can sometimes prevent tracking codes from firing correctly.

  4. Check if there are any issues with your website's server or hosting. If your website is experiencing downtime, this could affect the tracking data.

  5. Check if there are any issues with the data processing in Shopify. Sometimes, there can be delays in data processing that can result in temporary discrepancies in analytics data.

  6. Ensure that you are comparing the same metrics across both platforms. For example, if you are comparing "visits" on Shopify with "sessions" on GA4, this could result in different numbers as these metrics are not identical.

It's also worth noting that Shopify analytics and GA4 use different tracking methodologies and algorithms, which can sometimes lead to differences in data.
