A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
