  • To the left of the code will be folders. One of these folders will be labeled Sections. Click on the Sections folder. 
  • From the drop-down available under the Sections folder, look for the Footer.Liquid file. Click on this folder. 
  • Once this folder is open, you will want to search for the “powered by Shopify” code. To do this, open the search bar. 

On PC, type in Ctrl + F on your keyboard to open the search bar. On Mac, use the Command + F keys to open the search bar. 

  • Once the search bar is available, search for {{ powered_by_link }}. 
  • This will bring up a highlighted section in your code that is responsible for the “powered by” tag. All you need to do is go to the highlighted section and clear it like you would any other bit of text. Be sure not to mess with the other code in your folder.
