How to simply remove ‘powered by Shopify’ in 2 easy methods

If you’re setting up your new Shopify store, you probably will want to remove the powered by Shopify text or link in the footer of your store.

When you create a store for the first time, the text is shown in the footer of the website to let the general public know that it has been generated by Shopify. Shopify is an easy-to-use e-commerce platform that allows anyone to create an online website to sell their goods.

Many Shopify store owners want to remove powered by Shopify to keep their footer clean and not make it entirely obvious the store was created using Shopify. As the majority of dropshipping stores use Shopify, other store owners may not want their store being associated to this industry.

Removing the link gives store owners the liberty to create an authentic brand image for their store.

So how do I remove powered by Shopify from the footer of my store?

We discuss two methods of removing it below. The route you choose will depend on how comfortable you feel using Shopify.
