Rücksendungsgenehmigung
Explanation:
A longerversion of this, which is not really necessary, would be "Warenrücksendungsgenehmigung", which includes the "merchandise" part of your question.

Genehmigung zur Warenrücksendung


Explanation:
I would say Genehmigung zur Warenrücksendung instead of using a monstrous term (even in German) of Warenrücksendungsgenehmigung. I do feel the "Waren" should be part of the translation as this is what it's about!

Cheerio,
Dierk

... eine Warenrücksendeautorisierung zu beantragen


Explanation:
There is no direct translation for this as most german companies use the abbreviation RMA in combination with an explanatory phrase like "Rücksendeverfahren (RMA)" or "Rücksende(RMA)-Verfahren".
However with the imperative tone of your quote the german should definitely be something very strong like "... um eine Warenrücksendeautorisierung zu beantragen."
