In the trade since 1995, Natasha Club was one of the first mail order bride services to go fully online. As a consequence, they have managed to build up quite a reputation backed up by plenty of testimonials available on their website. However, some consumers forums have recently begun to cast doubt on this reputation and we must admit, some of the profiles on NatashaClub do look just a little to good to be true. Given this mixed reputation, we encourage users to read on as well as check out the site for themselves in order to come to a balanced verdict.
Browsing the website and checking out the public profiles is completely free at NatashaClub. You can rate the ladies photos, although we couldn't really see what purpose this serves and, in fact, found it rather degrading. Sending messages doesn't come at a cost which is refreshing for a mail order bride site. However, the catch is that to read the ladies' replies you must spend credits. Credits can also be spent on phone translation services, which are a great way to get past that awkward language barrier. This said, during our testing we weren't even able to access the online payment page which left just cash or a money order as payment options. Although the price for credits isn't too bad, there is no knowing when or even if you'll receive these and until Natasha Club sort out these technical issues we recommend readers hold off paying for anything.
Those of us looking for organized trips will not find anything of interest at Natasha Club. Rather, once you have got to know a girl well enough that she is willing to share with you her contact details (which come at a price) it is up to you to arrange a visit to go and meet up in the flesh. Before doing so however, users may want to take advantage of the background check services offered through 1st International, NatashaClub's sister site. Although this might not be the romantic beginning to a happy life together that you imagined, it's worth considering as the mail order bride sector is known for high levels of scam activity.
We did appreciate the web design and aesthetics of Natasha Club. This is mainly down to them belonging to the 1st International network, which hosts other sites in this category such as Single-Baltic-Lady.co, 1st International and Lovessa and hence are able to share templates and features. In fact, even the databases and price schemes are the same, all that really differs is the design. For this reason you may find that our reviews for these sites broadly cover the same set of advantages and disadvantages for each one.
Overall, the feature set and usability of Natasha Club is not bad for the price they offer and if their payment system actually worked we may have been tempted to check this service out. However, those users looking for the full mail order bride experience, including a romance tour, will need to look elsewhere. If you're still interested, there's no harm done by checking out their basic free membership. That said, we think your time would be better spent considering those services in our top ten list which are far more professional and economical.
