QuickBooks Online, Paypal, and 1099s

This is a very technical question - hope to reach the right person here!

I am the bookkeeper for a small business.  We use Paypal and QuickBooks Online.

We paid one independent contractor three times on Paypal.  One of the payments was excluded from the QuickBooks Online 1099 form. 

The other two payments were not excluded.


I think something is probably coded differently, but I am not sure where to look.  Do you have any suggestions?


Also, the independent contractor is providing services.  Does Paypal provide 1099s for services or only for sales?


My first choice is to include the amount in the 1099 that we are sending the independent contractor.  How do I change the vendor bill or the bill payment so that it is not excluded from the 1099 even though it was paid via Paypal?


Thank you.

I figured it out, and am posting here in case this is a problem for anyone else.


I used the word "Paypal" as the check number in the bill payment for the excluded payment.  

Even though we show Paypal as a "bank" in QBO, and all transactions are automatically downloaded, ONLY the one transaction with the word "Paypal" in the check number was excluded.
