There are two different values for payday when you hold tab during a mission:

$1,383,750 ON PAYDAY - PAYDAY: $1,950,950

As you can see in the image, the payday on the bottom-left is about $500 000 less than the payday on the top-right.

What is the difference in meaning between the two?

  • Looking like the difference between the bags and extra loot(deposit boxs).

The value at the top right should display the correct total value for the payday, and I'm pretty sure it increases as you pick up instant cash and secure bags. I imagine the total at the bottom left is summarising how much you have gained from the bags you have secured.

  • Again. This is why.

As you progress through a mission you get instant cash, bonuses for finishing the mission a certain way (stealth vs loud), objectives completed, and bag items contribute towards the end result.

If you secured the bags it is probably why the number went up.

  • Just tested it. True.
