Online shopping is the process whereby consumers directly buy goods or services from a seller in real-time, without an intermediary service, over the Internet. If an intermediary service is present the process is called electronic commerce.

In other words,they are desperate and they will borrow the money from their friends just to go shopping. However, the student will forget to pay back their friend’s money and keep borrowing from the others. As a consequence, from time to time, their debt will arrise and they have no money to pay back their friends.
