What's your Skrill currency? USD?

Upwork  has no knowledge of how Skrill will categorize your account, you should have asked Skrill what fees would apply before withdrawing, and Skrill are well known for very quickly categorizing their users as merchant users.

 

You will need to take it up with Skrill.

 

 

Upwork recommends that you use bank transaction to withdraw your money because it is the most reasonable option.
