Delivery Confirmation just lets the recipient know you sent it, lets them see where it is along the delivery journey (insofar as it's scanned at each intermediate point, sometimes it is and sometimes it's not), and lets both sender and recipient know it was delivered ... somewhere in the city/zipcode to which it was shipped. Insisting on delivery confirmation prevents someone from taking your money via paypal and falsely claiming "oh I mailed it today" and then saying "musta gotten lost" when the package never arrives.

Certified/Return Receipt is more for lawyers... when you need proof and a record of when something was shipped, to whom, who signed for it, and on what day.
