A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to have an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and login details that are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, and the like. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website rather than http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
