Remove the 'Powered by Shopify' text from your store

You can remove the "Powered by Shopify" message if you don't want to show it on your store. There are two ways to remove this text. You only need to use one of these methods – choose whichever one seems easier to you.

The steps for this tutorial differ depending on whether you are using a sectioned or a non-sectioned theme. To figure out whether your theme supports sections, go to the theme's Edit HTML/CSS page. If there are files in the Sections directory, you are using a sectioned theme. Non-sectioned themes were released before October 2016, and do not have files in the Sections directory.

If you are using a sectioned theme, then click the Sectioned themes button and follow the instructions. If you are using non-sectioned theme, then click the Non-sectioned themes button and follow the instructions.
