I want to measure in how many visits a checkout-button was clicked. To do so, I create a segment:

 

Checkout Button clicked: button name (c03) equals checkout

 

Now I want to calculate the number of visits. I did this for different segment-scopes:

 

# Visits for Segment Checkout Button clicked with Hit Scope: 1001

# Visits for Segment Checkout Button clicked with Visit Scope: 1010

 

If I use different scopes for the segment, the number of visits is different. I was expecting that it would be equal.

 

Why is it different?

are you using evar or prop? if use evar, it may happen.

maybe somewhere on your webpage are triggering a call with this value persist but no instance.

If add more criteria: c03 instances exist, will you see the same result?

Checkout Button clicked: button name (c03) equals checkout AND Checkout Button clicked: button name (c03) instance exists

Did you exclude the current day from the reporting period?
