If you have bee using Shopify for some time, you may have noticed “Powered by Shopify”default text in the footer of your website.
I love using Shopify as an e-commerce platform when building online stores.
However, having this default text displayed on your website will confuse your visitors.
Removing this text is a quick way for you to make your e-commerce business look more professional.
Today I will show you how you can remove this text in a few simple steps.
When you login into your Shopify dashboard, head over to “Themes“.
Now click on “Actions“, select “Edit code” from the drop down.
Next, click on “Sections” and then “footer.liquid“.
Once the code appears on your screen, depending on your keyboard, press ctrl + f (CMD + F for Mac).
A small search bar will appear. Enter “powered“.
Once you see the text highlighted yellow, delete “powered_by_link” in between the curly brackets.
Some themes may have the same code appearing more than once.
Click on the down arrow in the search bar to find the other codes displaying “powered_by_link“.
Click on “Save” in the right hand corner when you have finished deleting them all.
Preview your store and checkout your new footer.
Method 2 – How to Remove “Powered by Shopify”
The first method I mentioned above is usually the best way of removing the default text from appearing in your footer.
However, I have found another way of removing “Powered by Shopify” without the need of accessing your theme’s code.
When you are in your Shopify dashboard, click on “Theme” and then “Actions“.
Now select “Edit languages” in the dropdown.
Now, type “powered” into the “Filter” search box.
You should now see some grey text under “Footer“. All you have to do is add a single space by pressing on your spacebar under “Footer“.
Doing this will remove the default text.
You can see other sections of your website which contains default text, such as Checkout & system/Checkout remember me and Checkout & system/Links.
You can do the same by adding in a single space to these fields to disable the default text.
