Let me help and guide you with mapping accounts to 1099 - MISC categories in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
It's important to report the total payments in the correct boxes when preparing 1099-MISC forms. To categorize 1099 payments to coordinate with the boxes, please follow these steps:
Go to Workers and choose Contractors.
Click on Prepare 1099s.
Click on Let's get started.
Review the information in the Company section and click on Next.
In the Account section, this is where you will have to categorize accounts. On the categories page, select the checkbox next to all the 1099 boxes that fit the type of the contractor payments you make. Review the payment totals for each box. If you don’t see all of the payments you expect, check that the list shows right tax year and type of vendor (they should meet the 1099 threshold). Excluded payments are typically those paid by credit card, which are reported to the IRS by the credit card issuer. Once you're done, click on Next.
In the Contractors section, review the contractors' information and click on Next.
Click on Finish preparing 1099s.
Click on Go to 1099 E-File Service to e-file your 1099s.

There you have it. You should be able to map an account to 1099 after following these steps.
