Upwork charges $1 per withdrawal to PayPal. However, if the currency of your PayPal account is not US dollars, you will also be charged 2.5% currency conversion fee.
You may need to contact your local bank for more information about other fees asociated with withdrawing money from ATM.
Here is a help article with some useful information as well.
Hey Abduallah ,
