    delivery date

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether "delivery date" could also mean the day when a contract was signed?

    Thank you very much.

    Not usually - again, more context is really needed.

    Re: delivery date

    Unfortunately, I donīt have more context. But I only need to know, whether "delivery date" could be used for the day when a contract was signed, although it is not usual.

    Thanks.

    I've never seen it in this context, apart from the covering letter going with the contract.

    Re: delivery date

    If you buy goods via distance selling (phone e.g) you may be expected to sign and pay on delivery. If you pay on delivery then the contract can be seen to be completed on that day. That is also when the title of the goods passes to the buyer, upon payment and upon receipt.
    Most sales are not payment upon delivery and the contract is completed (not signed) over the phone, on the internet or in person.
    Hope that helps.
