They aren't just collecting autographs. When you use a credit card, your signature is your commitment to pay the bill when it comes due. They don't really care what your signature looks like. It could even be just an X. The merchant has the right to compare the signature on back of the card with the signature on the receipt to validate it, but they almost never do. Still, your signature is your word.

the sign on the receipt and sign on the back of your card should match...the shop keeper need to tale this immediately after you sign on receipt ..if both are not same then he need to imform to the bank ...and he need to reject the payment but these days the shop keeper are not at all checking it...... this is a additon step for preventing misuse of our card..

if you are using a credit card to be sure it is your account and that you will pay the bill when it comes due if you didn't sign, who knows how many unauthorized purchases could be made on your account

Originally, approximately 50 years ago, credit card companies could send you a credit card even if you didn't apply for it, so the signature on the receipt was actually your agreement to pay the credit card bill. The other reason is that if there is a dispute about whether the card was stolen or whether the transaction was fraudulent, they are supposed to be able to find the receipt and check the handwriting to see if you were the person who signed it.
