Easy, yet time-consuming achievement. What you need to do is to complete 500 missions from mission boards in starports. The best way to earn millions with missions is by going to the Sothis/Ceos systems with a large trader (Type-7 or higher recommended) and take trade/smuggling missions off the board. The payout is so high because most of the missions must be handed in more than 400ly away. A fuel scoop is needed to reach these systems. Also, the best missions are reputation-locked so it will take a while to reach the big payouts.
Reputation can be built by doing the local data delivery missions if they are there.

To get those high payouts for missions you'll need to stack them. When you've taken all viable missions off the board in Open Play, switch to Solo Play. Don't go to Private Group since the boards there are the same as in Open. After taking all good missions in Solo Play, wait for 10-15 minutes and switch to Open again. This also works the other way around. Credit to planting42 for all fine details.
