How Can I remove "Powered by Shopify" from the Footer of My Site?

If you’d like to delete this text you have two different ways to do so. You can choose from either of the following options to remove the unwanted text from your site’s footer.

The first tactic you can do is edit your theme’s language setting Here’s what you need to do:

  • Go to you Shopify Admin page and select Online Stores, then click on Themes
  • Choose the theme you are currently using for your eCommerce then click Actions followed by Edit Language
  • In the Filters Translations box type “powered”
  • Lastly in the “Powered by Shopify” box type one single space

What this does is ensure that the faded place holder text will no longer be able to be seen. If you have a store that is password protected you can do these steps again for the “Powered by Shopify” HTML box which will remove “Powered by Shopify” from the “Opening Soon” page.

Remember to click Save when you are finished!
