To me, a returned item suggests that the item was accepted and is now being brought back. A rejected item is one that was never accepted. Hopefully I can explain what I mean. :) I buy a computer and take it home. For whatever reason, I decide I don't want to keep it so I return it to the store for a refund. I then look at the store's other computer offerings and the salesman brings out a different computer. Straight away I know I don't want it so I reject it. The second computer was never accepted by me so it will never be returned by me.

As a customer, I can ask for or request a refund. Depending on the situation, it could be a full (all of what I paid) or partial (only part of what I paid is given back) refund. As a customer, I hope for a prompt refund. The seller can give me a refund or issue a refund. Sometimes, the seller will deny a refund because it is against their policy. I hope this helps but I'm not sure it's exactly what you meant.
