You do not have to worry to pay your 1099 contractors. But the condition is you should be a user of either QuickBooks Online Full-service Payroll or QuickBooks Online Payroll.

You will see a tab named as “Workers” into QuickBooks Online in which you can seek for the Vendors who are 1099 Vendors. You also can add appropriate vendors to the list by finding them into your data and then Vendor Details editing as 1099 qualified.

You will have to pay $2 for every Direct Deposit Contractor in that particular month in which you will execute Direct Deposit contractor’s payment. But if the payment for Direct Deposit contractor is not executed by you, the amount $2 will not be charged for that respective month.
