About credit provider

While testing the recent master branch of ecommerce to check something with regards to Python 3 support, I encountered the following error while attempting to access /courses in order to add a new course:

Nov 20 15:19:51 ip-10-0-0-71 [service_variant=ecommerce][ecommerce.courses.views] ERROR [ip-10-0-0-71 27284] [/edx/app/ecommerce/ecommerce/ecommerce/courses/views.py:57] - Failed to retrieve credit providers!

File “/edx/app/ecommerce/ecommerce/ecommerce/courses/views.py”, line 51, in get_ credit _providers

We do not have credit providers and we do not intend to have them. How do I tell ecommerce to not look for credit providers? This looks like a different behavior than on ironwood.master

Is there a switch somewhere I need to turn on?
