One of the first things I noticed when I opened up my brand new Shopify store on June 1, 2017 was this little annoying byline at the bottom of my store that said, “Powered by Shopify.”
I hated it. It was like the tiny little byline was JUMPING off the page and starring me in the face!!!
I feel like, it’s MY ecommerce store. It just feels so unprofessional to have that on my website, so I immediately wanted to take it off.

It’s actually quite easy to remove. Here are the steps to take:
Step 1: When login to your Shopify admin, go to “Online Store,” then “Themes.”
Step 2: This takes you to your themes page. Click “the Actions” drop down arrow, then “Edit languages.”
Step 3: In the “Filter Translations” box, type “powered by shopify”.

Step 5: Simply click “Save” and you’re done!
