Actually, at one point Leela crashes into a billboard that says something like "over 3.8 x 10^10 popplers served", so Fry and Bender should have each made something like 1.5 billion dollars, which they obviously didn't

The only thing I've been able to come up with to explain it is that Fishy Joe just never paid Fry and Bender.  He turned out to be a sleazebag, after all.  Either that or he was bankrupted when people found out he was selling sentient food.

Or maybe they were going to buy mansions but by the time they did, the popplers weren't allowed to be eaten becuase of the omicronians. So as a result, they had to give all the money back.
But, I think soyelntOrange has a better explanation.
