The email template sent to the customer is fully customizable. You can even change the language of the notification. There are several shortcodes given that displays different data.
You can add plain text and shortcodes to complete the information.
In this way, the template looks professional and has all the important details.
This is the basic look out of the email notification –

You can also create custom email templates. Use this option, when you want to send product-wise email notifications.
