Hi Josh, thanks for the reply! I think we might be talking about separate things here. I have google analytics set up on my main website, for which I can check google analytics and see that 100 unique visitors and around 100 session happened during that day. On this same website, I have an embedded shopify buy button. It's the kind that opens up a modal upon a click, and the modal allows the users to add items to the shopify cart. I set up tracking on my main site to send a google analytics event when the shopify buy button is clicked. And in google analytics, I can see that around 40 people have clicked on the shopify buy button. However, when I log into my Shopify Dashboard, and click on the Analytics section of my Shopify account (NOT google analytics), I see that there has only been 4 "sessions" during that time frame, which also led to 0 "added to carts". I'm trying to figure out the disconnect between what's being reported on the google analytics that I set up on my own site vs. what's being reported on the shopify analytics section

Hi there! I have a reporting question. I am only selling through shopify using embedded shopify buy-buttons on my own website. The buy button presents a modal with product details, which then gives them the option to add to cart. In the Analytics section of my shopify account, it shows that I had 4 "sessions" yesterday, and 0 of them added to cart. My question is what actually is considered a "session" in this case? I would have assumed a "session" started whenever someone clicked on a buy button, but I also separately track this action through google analytics, which reported that 40 people have clicked on a buy button over this same period of time. Any help with this would be appreciated, thanks!
