A term originally derived from Porn films, the money shot, or cum shot, was when the male lead Jizzed on the female face, tits or arse depending on their previous action to show the porn fest was over.
It was considered to be the most important shot in the film as it couldn't be faked, unlike almost anything else. A good cum shot could guarantee commercial success on an enormous scale - hence money shot.
For the stars involved a good cum shot signified completion of the film and pay day - hence money shot.
