A Philadelphia community bank plans to use the Internet to let customers set their own rates on short-term certificates of deposit.

Starting next Monday, Bank Philadelphia will offer 12-month CDs at rates to be determined on-line by auction-style bidding. The thrift expects the novel move to attract national attention to www.usabanc.com, the Web site operated by its parent company, USABancShares.
