How to remove the "Powered by" notice in X-Cart


Despite the fact, we all respect the copyright and the great effort put into creating the X-Cart software, on some occasions, you might want to remove the default "Powered by X-Cart" notice, which appears in the footer of your web pages.

On each of the paid X-Cart versions, you are allowed to remove the notice without interfering with the License Agreement.

There are two methods for completing this task. In the following lines, we are going to review each of them, so you can choose which one is more convenient and easy for you to follow.


Method one: From the Backend

For a start, please log in to your X-Cart Admin Area and navigate through the left-hand side menu bar to Look & Feel Custom CSS & JS.


Accessing the Custom CSS & JS section


When there, please make sure to enable the "Use custom CSS" option by setting the "OFF" button to "ON".

Once this is done, you have to insert the following code into the textbox.


.powered-by .powered-by-label {
display: none;


When ready, please click on the "Save changes" button.
