I do believe Kyle is implying she was expecting to purchase pharmaceuticals but doubts whether there were any to be sold. But she did in fact have her money pre-confiscated prior to police intervention and received no goods.

I'm not familiar with that particular line of commerce, but I do believe it's customary for the client to pay the woman, not the reverse.

Correct, but an enterprising youth might reasonably expect a woman conducting such business to have been paid by previous clients.
