Your 1099 from AdThrive should match the payments you received in the previous year, not how much you earned. Because we pay on a net-45 schedule, those payments will be offset from each month’s earnings.
One situation we’ve seen is when a publisher has made a mid-year change to a payment method or business structure that won’t receive a 1099, such as switching to receiving payments through PayPal or becoming an S-Corporation or C-Corporation. In this instance, your 1099 will only reflect the amounts you received before making the change.
You can confirm the total amount you received from AdThrive last year by logging in to your dashboard and selecting the Payments tab. From there, you can even export your entire payment history to Excel to simplify your record keeping!
