    "Delivery not before September 1st", what dose this sentence present?

    "Delivery not before September 1st", I am wondering if delivery should be before September 1st or after September 1st? I hope I can make sure it. It just confused me.
    Thank you very much.

    I take 'not before September 1st' to mean 'after August 31st'.

    Not a teacher.

    One could also say "on or after September 1st".

    Please don't blame me for this inconrrect filling. I only can find "nation choice“ in ”current location“ column, so I can not choose "city" from "current location" column.
    Please kindly check. Thanks

    Enter the name of the country (nation) where you are currently.

    Why does your IP address indicate otherwise?
