Are you using Shopify Payments as your payment gateway? One of the more common reasons for a missing payout from a particular gateway is if you have another payment provider enabled on your account, and your customer chose to pay via the other option.
For example, if you have Paypal AND Shopify Payments enabled on your account, and your customers chose to pay via Paypal for a few orders, then the payments would have been processed by Paypal and deposited into your Paypal account. Therefore, those amounts would not be included in your Shopify Payments payout. Does that make sense?
Do you recall if you have any other payment gateways enabled in your store? You can check by going to Settings > Payments.
Another quick way to see where the funds from those orders were processed is to look at the payment history of the order. To do this, please go to Orders from your Shopify admin, and click on one of the orders in question. Scroll down to the Timeline of the order, and you will see how the order was paid for, and through which gateway it was processed. (Clicking on the small arrow next to the timeline event, as seen below, will provide the full details of the transaction).
