Many Shopify website owners find themselves wanting to remove the Powered by Shopify branding from the bottom of their shop? If you’re one of the many eCommerce website owner’s who do, you can follow this guide to quickly learn how to delete the Powered by Shopify link from your Shopify store.

Is it worth removing the Powered by Shopify link?

Here at Shop Style Design, we love Shopify. We think it’s excellent, possibly the best e-commerce platform available today. Not only does it simplify the day to day processes, many e-commerce entrepreneurs find exceptionally tedious, but it’s also a highly respected brand.

Given that, what reason could there be to remove the Shopify branding? Quite simply, even though the Shopify brand is trusted, it runs the risk of causing a break in trust between your potential customer and your brand.

It’s important to remember that eCommerce is centered around the trust your business builds with your customers. Given that, they expect to see your brand prominently displayed on your website, and not Shopify’s. To drive this home, let’s examine a  scenario. Say you’re a customer looking to buy organic deodorant. You come across this neat online store that sells aluminum-free deodorant, and they have excellent  branding, but when you get to the bottom of the page, you notice that telltale “Powered by Shopify.”

While that may not have been enough to deter you from buying altogether, it can certainly make the store’s otherwise exceptional branding a little murky.
