Andale.Com provides a universal auction management system, with a
variety of tools geared to the seller.   Though not the first into the
market place with tools for sellers, they are attempting to bring a
whole series of features together in one place.   The service is free
through March 2000, but there are plans to start charging for the
service after that.

We had grave concerns about the security of the User Ids and passwords
that are required by the site. After a phone conversation tonight with
Heidi, their customer evangelist, we were assured that the site was very
secure,   and see that they have updated the site security statement in
line with our suggestions.   Quote The Andale site is protected by
firewalls and multiple layers of data encryption.   If, in the extreme
case that Andale data is ever compromised, it would be virtually
impossible to view any registered username and password.   Andale
employees DO NOT have access to your user name and password Endquote
