It's 20% of the first $500 with a client, not by project. So, if it's your first project with a client and the price is $300, you will pay 20%, or $60. But, if you've had other contracts with the client in the past that totalled more than $500 and now you start a new contract that is $300, you will pay 10%, or $30.

20% of the first $500 is collected by Upwork. 80% goes to the freelancer.
