How to Remove “Powered by Shopify” From Your Shopify Store

Having an online store means building a brand that’s distinctly yours. Shopify has made e-commerce easy, but that little tagline, “Powered by Shopify”, at the bottom of your store may not resonate with your branding efforts. In this guide, we’ll explore how to seamlessly remove it. Plus, we’ve got good news for those using themes from our Shopify theme store or designing with Shopsta software. Let’s dive in!

1. Introduction: Why Remove “Powered by Shopify”

Having “Powered by Shopify” on your store isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It speaks of the robust platform you’re using. However, if you’re aiming for a fully branded experience, removing this tagline can make your website look more professional and bespoke.

2. Using Our Shopify Theme Store

All themes available in our Shopify theme store come with a significant advantage: they’re white label. This means when you apply them to your store, you won’t find the “Powered by Shopify” label. It’s a hassle-free way to maintain the professional appearance of your site.

3. Designing with Shopsta Software

Shopsta brings the power of customization to your fingertips. If you’re looking to design and export Shopify themes uniquely tailored to your brand, Shopsta ensures they’re unbranded or white label. Your exported themes will be free of the ‘powered by’ label, giving your store a sleek, branded finish.

4. Steps to Remove “Powered by Shopify”

If you’re using a standard Shopify theme and wish to remove the tagline manually, follow these steps:

For Desktop:

a. From your Shopify admin:

  1. Go to Online Store > Themes.
  2. Find the theme you want to edit, click Actions > Edit languages.
  3. In the Filter translations box, type “powered”.
  4. In the Powered by Shopify box, type a single space (this will effectively remove the text as it replaces it with a blank space).
  5. Click Save.

For Mobile:

a. From your Shopify app:

  1. Tap Store.
  2. In the Sales channels section, tap Online Store > Manage themes.
  3. Find the theme you want to edit, tap Actions > Edit languages.
  4. In the Filter translations box, type “powered”.
  5. In the Powered by Shopify box, type a single space.
  6. Tap Save.

Note: If the above method doesn’t work, you might need to edit the footer.liquid code and remove the line containing “Powered by Shopify”. If you’re unsure about this, consider hiring a professional or use themes from trusted sources like our theme store.

5. Conclusion

Branding is about creating a unique identity, and every detail counts. By opting for themes from our Shopify theme store or designing with Shopsta, you can effortlessly maintain a consistent, professional look across your website. If you’re starting with a standard Shopify theme, the above guide will help you declutter and give your store that sleek appearance it deserves. Happy selling!
