    He received the confirmation message for the payment he'd made.

    He received the confirmation message for the payment he'd made.
    He received the confirmatory message for the payment he'd made.

    Though 'confirmatory message' is right, it seems 'confirmation message' is what widely used. Please tell me which one do you think is the most fitting way of saying it?

    Thank you.

    The word confirmatory is rarely used. You should avoid it unless you see it used in the context in which you're writing.
