Nowadays we use frequently use the online payment option for shopping, booking tickets, recharging our mobile phone balance etc. So, we keep on getting confirmations, billing statements from online shopping websites, online payment banks, airlines and so on. We know that these records are valuable. We get hundreds of emails through out the day and the important billing mails may get lost or suppressed under the huge stacks of other mails. So can we get a separate tab for this? If you are using Gmail, then surely you can. Gmail has by default three tabs, Primary, Promotional and Social. The Primary tab organizes the important emails, while Promotion tab gathers all promotional offers from different websites and the Social tab gathers all emails from social media websites like Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, Snapchat etc.
