My small business receives payments through Shopify; they do not offer a 1099 form to those generating less than 20k in sales, so I am unsure how to enter this income

My small business generated more than $600 in sales, but less than Shopify's $20k threshold in order to receive a 1099. I am unsure how/where to report this income properly without a form.

You can enter under ''General or Additional Income''.  Either one of these categories are for reporting cash, check, 1099-K, or other income not reported to you on a 1099-MISC.   I have attached images of examples and instructions to get here. 

In Self-Employed Advanced (business tab):  You may skip through some of this if you have your business already set-up.

  • How do you want to enter your business income?, then I'll choose what I work on
  • Business Income and Expenses, click Start/Update
  • Did you have any income and expenses for a business in 2016?, click Yes
  • First, let's confirm your business name and address, click Continue

  • Tell us about your business, click Continue
  • Enter Employer ID Number, If Any, click Continue
  • Do you use the cash method of accounting to run your business?, click Continue

  • Your Business page - Edit
