Order confirmation emails give you information you actually want.

Yay! You ordered this new thing. But it doesn’t feel official until you get the email. 

The only problem is they’re usually not that good. You don’t get any new information. You probably get a picture of the item you purchased with an order number and your address. But you already know all those things…

They turned confirmation emails into their superpower by teaching their customers about the product they just bought. How valuable is that?
