When applying a Member Campaign, the Financial Check is done and then the Campaign Check is done. It uses the PLU for Financial check which must be in a Family for the Member Campaign to work. Below is my example of every 5th visit gets a training Voucher.

 

 

When you are triggering Vouchers from the reception using the financial PLU, you MUST tick this setting as shown below.

Note : PLU 20000 adds Visits, PLU 19992 deducts Visits. If any other Member Check set to 19992, Visit Checking will NOT work.
