One of the first things you’ll notice when you create a Shopify store is that the footer of your site includes a link that says “Powered by Shopify.” While this link is fairly unobtrusive, many store owners prefer to remove it and have a completely branded experience for their customers.

Fortunately, removing “Powered by Shopify” from your store’s footer is a fairly simple process that only takes a few minutes. So, let’s get right into it.

How to Remove “Powered by Shopify” in 8 Simple Steps

Step 1: Log in to your Shopify admin.

Step 2: Go to Online Store > Themes.

Step 3: Click on Edit code under Actions for your theme.

Step 4: In the search bar, type in “footer”.

Step 5: Open the footer.liquid file.

Step 6: Press Cmd+F (or Ctrl+F on a Windows) and find the line of code that says {{ powered_by_link }}.

Step 7: Delete the entire line of code

Step 8: Save your changes

That’s it! Once you save your changes, the “Powered by Shopify” link will be removed from the footer of your store.

Is It The Same Process for All Themes?

Regardless of which Shopify theme you’re using the process to remove the “Powered by Shopify” text will more or less always be the same. There may be a small difference in the line of code that is used in your footer.liquid file however for 95% of themes, you can follow the process I’ve laid out above.

Just remember to search for the {{ powered_by_link }} variable in your theme.

Additionally, keep the footer.liquid file open until you’ve verified your changes in another tab. That way, if you accidentally deleted something that broke your theme you can quickly CMD+Z or Ctrl+Z to undo your changes, save, and revert back to before.


If you’re looking to create a completely branded experience for your customers, removing the “Powered by Shopify” link from the footer of your store is a quick and easy way to do so. Simply follow the steps outlined above and you’ll have it removed in no time.
