I have an accepted Extended abstract in an international conference. As a master student, it is heavy to pay for an extended abstract (400 Euros ). But at the same time is it good for my future to publish an extended abstract ( 2 pages paper ) in a conference?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
The aspect of what an extended abstract is differs from one field to another. Refer this page to get a better idea on what does it mean in your field:
For example, in CVPR, extended abstracts are handed out to the attendees before the start of the conference. They are much more handy than a huge proceedings book as each article is much smaller than its full version and includes all relevant details at a glance. It serves as a means to attract attendees attention especially when there are multiple venues occurring in the same time.
However, whether the amount you pay for it worth it or not depends on various factors, such as the field, the tier of the conference and so on. Sometimes in top tier conferences, there may be funding agencies who might be attending the conference. In such cases extended abstract would be a pretty valuable. But in any case, this decision would be better sought out by consulting it with your advisor or faculty members of your department as @ff524 suggested.
