Nothing complicated about it. When feed is turned on the rss/atom urls will appear in the head code for use by readers. Try it in a browser by using a url like [yoursitedomain]/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=virtuemart&productsublayout=0&Itemid=121&format=feed&type=rss

hi, thanks for your fast reply ...
In VM configurations (VM 2.6.14) -> templates -> category feed setting , i use:
Enable Product Feeds : Y
Include Images into the feed? : Y
Include the Product Price into the description? :Y
Include the Product Description?  Y
Type of Product Description : short d.
Maximum Description Length : 500

No have setting other, no in VM , no in J.  .... maybe I have to enable some other setting, or some module / component in joomla? 
unfortunately I can not see next to the categories of the store button feeds  ....
i have try your url but no see nothing   :o   .....  you can try my website is www.ilcompatibileshop.com

hi, I solved the problem, it was just to activate the module in joomla template and position it well in that now you see the RSS
(try with: brother –>  cartucce compatibili-> you can see the image rss).
 I wanted to ask, however, if you can get a unique url with all products in virtuemart because I have to add the feed in my twitter account and facebook .... I tried with your url but to me it does not work  . Thanks

VM generates a canonical url for each product which Googla uses as the "correct" url for each product. Check the code of the rendered page.
