The regular membership is free.  You can upgrade but I don't think it's necessary. When you are properly hired, Upwork takes a percentage of your earnings.  This is calculated per client earnings. 


0-$500 per client = 20%

$501-10,000 perclient = 10%

10,0001and up = 5%


I would encourage you to read and learn the Terms of Service as well as https://www.upwork.com/resources which has loads of information. Many questions have been answered here in the forums as well.
