Destination URL unique views and Goal conversions don't match

I'm tracking orders placed. Once payment is made, a virtual url is triggered. For my goal, I've set this URL as the destination URL. I do see conversion on the goal but not as expected. 

If I look under Behaviour > Site Content > All Pages for the virtual url, I see 10 unique page views. However, I see only 5 goal conversions for the same virtual URL.

 

Since this URL is triggered only on payment and cannot be triggered with a refresh, I'm not sure why I am not seeing 10 goal conversions.

Hi Ruchika,

Did you check that your virtual pageview is only fired on purchase?
Change your goal to matches Regex instead of an exact match or begins with.

Also, view data starting from the next day of virtual pageview and goals setup.

Hi Noman,

Thanks for replying. Yes, checked on the virtual pageview. It's being triggered only after purchase is successful.
I'll try changing it to a Regex.
One question; is it right to assume that the goal conversions should be the same as the unique pageviews of the URL?
