    I been doing post page engagement ads and I spent around $150 with 0 purchases on my dashboard with this product. However, I got many shares. If a customer buys this product through a share on the ad would it show up on my purchases for this ad?

    I'm asking because I spent this much money and making sales from the 1 ad with no other promotion. I just started selling this product with a new website.

    Thank you

    I don't believe shares count.
    Ive had more than 60 purchases but fb only tracked 20. It made it very hard to scale. I had lots of shares on that one.

    On one that I barely got shares, 60 sales and fb tracked 55. So I'm 99 percent sure shares don't count for purchases

    Thank you! It actually showed purchases for you PPE ad? Yeah, I think most of my sales are coming from the shares. This is a new website with no organic traffic or any promotion besides Facebook PPE ad with a lot of shares. I'm thinking to increase my daily budget higher for this Campaign. I think a viral effect is happening but FB doesn't show purchases for shares.

    That's odd, and you've installed the FB tracking pixel on your website too?
