How to Remove “Powered by Shopify” from Website Footer 2023


In this video I walk you through the steps of removing the “Powered by Shopify” text in the site footer of your store. I will be demonstrating this using the Shopify Dawn theme but this should apply to most themes. The official help video from Shopify has you just remove the link text but the HTML link is still present. So I will show you the way to actually remove the anchor link and text and discuss the pros and cons of each method.

In this Shopify Setup Tutorial, You’ll Learn:

  • How to remove the powered by Shopify link text
  • How to edit Dawn theme code to completely remove the text and anchor link

Method 1 – Just remove the powered by Shopify label text

  1. Step 1: Login to your Shopify admin account
  2. Step 2: click on online store in the left sidebar
  3. Step 3: click on themes, and then the three horizontal dots
  4. Step 4: then click on edit default theme content
  5. Step 5: search for “powered by Shopify”
  6. Step 6: deleting the text does not work so instead add a blank space and hit save

When you refresh your site you should now see the “Powered by Shopify” text removed from your site footer. But, if you inspect the element code the HTML anchor link is still present. Follow the steps below to completely remove the anchor tag and text.
