Payback to me is getting even.  It doesn't have to be as strong as "revenge" which implies anger.

 

A few years ago when we sent Christmas presents to our grandchildren we included some little items.  Each of the kids received a nicely wrapped gift which gave them much delight.  They got whistles!  They made lots of noise.  I told my daughter it was payback for some of the things she did as a kid.
