Remove powered by shopify

When you create an store on Shopify, the text “Powered by Shopify” is shown in the footer of the store that lets the general public know that this store has been made on Shopify. This notice does not help in any way in converting or, even worst, shows your clients that you were careless when building your site and didn’t take care of all the little tweaks. So, how do you remove “Powered by Shopify” from your store?

Some storeowner want “Powered by Shopify” gone because of aesthetics, some just want their footer clean of any links, or any other reasons.

This sign can often lead people to believe that it’s a dropshipping store and they can find better deals elsewhere. 

Removing Shopify in the footer opens up opportunities to create an authentic brand image for your store.

First method: Delete “Powered by Shopify” through the “Edit Languages” option

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
  2. Find the theme that you want to edit, and then click Actions > Edit languages.
  3. In the Filter translations box, type “powered”.
  4. In the Powered by Shopify box, use the space bar on your keyboard to type a single space. You can repeat these steps for the Powered by Shopify HTML box, which appears on your store’s “Opening soon” page if your store is password-protected.
  5. Click Save.

Second method: Remove “Powered by Shopify” through the Edit Code option
