Hi Abdullah,


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 , 

 i heard also that the paypal is working on Egypt , but with no luck ... but any way UpWork charges 1$ to transfare the money .. the problem will be when converting the money from the ATM .. the conversion rate will be the bank conversion rate and they will take their commision i think it`s between 3 to 4 % .. it will be better than the bank withdraw for sure .. it`s costing like 45$ every time u transfare money from UpWork .. if u find a way to make paypal work .. please let me know

You will be able to withdraw from Upwork to Paypal, but you won't be able to use your Paypal balance, i.e. you won't be able to send or shop using that balance.
