A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
