I have already earned $996 from one of my client Louise and some more earnings are pending. So, I want to know when this pending earning from this client would come to my upwork account then how much upwork would charge me?

Above $500 with same client: 10%

Above $10,000 with same client: 5%

Anisha - look at the Reports page and see what tab the money is listed under.  Assuming you're working under a contract, it'll be on one of them. Then mouse over the ? icon for that tab, it will tell you when the money moves to the next tab.


There's also a "When will I get paid" link on the reports page with a lot of detail on the process.

Dear Anisha,

For the first $500, charge 20% that is $100

From $501 to $10000 charge is 10% that is in your case $49.6

And from $10000 above it will be 5%


that's it
