Answered By:

Uber London Limited is required to meet the same regulatory requirements as any other private hire operator licensed by TfL, including accepting bookings at their licensed operating centre in London. 

The processing of passenger fare payments, how drivers are paid and by whom is something for individual operators to determine and does not fall within TfL's regulatory remit.
