Once the plugin is installed, click the Activate Plugin button.

Activate WP1099 License

Once the plugin is activated, click on WP1099 on the left side menu in your WordPress administrative area.

This is where you will enter your license key for the plugin.

Set the Tax Year

This setting allows you to see reports from prior tax years (if available). You will need to select the current tax year here in order to see this year's payouts in the Payouts tab.

Simply click the drop-down menu and select the current tax year, or whichever year you want to view the payouts for (i.e. 2017, 2018, etc.). Click Save Changes once you have selected the correct year. You can change this setting at any time.

Your Business Information

Below the Tax Year, there are a number of fields that ask for information about your business. This information will be used to populate the CSV export file that is generated on the Payouts tab.

Enter the information as appropriate, and click the Save Changes button. You shouldn't have to update this information again unless any of your business information changes. If it does, simply update these fields and save your changes.
