A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt all the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a dependable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
