How to remove “powered by Shopify”: Tips to replace the link to Shopify.com

“Powered by Shopify” is a trademark of Shopify, which they put in their default/ debut themes to indicate their copyright.

It has no effect whatsoever on your store, however, for a professional website, you may need to replace it. This article will show you how to do it in 2 simple ways.

How do you remove the “powered by Shopify”line in the footer?

Method 1: Use Edit Languages setting

Step 1: In Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.

Step 2: Find the theme you want to edit, and click Actions > Edit languages.

Advance tip: How to replace the link to Shopify.com

If you want to replace the “Powered by Shopify” with different text but not linked to Shopify.com, you can also use the “Edit Code” method with a few easy steps:

In Step 5, instead of deleting the line completely, you can replace this code:

{{ powered_by_link }}

with a different text using this formula:

<small class="copyright__content">text</small>

For example:

<small class="copyright__content">Terms and conditions</small>

And if you want to add link to the text, you can add the following code:

<small class="copyright__content"><a href="link" text </a></small>

For example:

<small class="copyright__content"><a href="https://boostcommerce.net/" Terms and conditions</a></small>

Here is a screenshot after changing the code:
