    I'm a little confused. It would make more sense if the customer had now agreed (be willing not unwilling) to accept the goods by a certain date. If they are still unwilling, then what was the point of the negotiation? It makes sense if they have now decided that they will accept the goods on or before 20th May, but absolutely no later.
