Hello ujita1003, and thanks for your question.

If you'd like to modify the footer in OpenCart, you can check out our article on customizing the OpenCart footer.

Basically if you're using the default theme you'd want to modify this file:


In that article it goes over how to remove the "Powered By OpenCart" text. However if you wished to edit the Customer Service section link for Contact Us you'd modify this line:

<li><a href='<?php echo $contact; ?>'><?php echo $text_contact; ?></a></li>

If you wanted it pointed to a contactus.html page you have setup, you could change that line to simply read:

<li><a href='contactus.html'>Contact Us</a></li>

Hope that info helps you out, let us know if you had any further questions at all.
