If i get you right you want to know what the 20%, 10%, and 5% means when it comes to withdrawing your funds.
There are few ways of withdrawing your funds on Upwork. Payonner is one the ways. The 20%, 10%, and 5% rate is the amount that Upwork charge on the projects you're awarded. For example if a client awards you a job worth $500, Upwork takes 20% but subsequent project by the same client will reduce Upworks charges from 20% to 10% and then 5%.

Please refer to link above.
On Upwork, you get charged the service fee, which is a percentage of your earnings, AND the withdrawal fee anytime you want to withdraw.
You should research what withdrawal method is most appropriate for your situation.
You have no idea what wonders trial & error can work!
