Hi funnyclown, and welcome here!
Well, buying in advance is cheaper most of the time, but current exchange rates indeed cause many reseller prices to go up. Not every pass is for sale in Switzerland (e.g. the Swiss Transfer Ticket and some promotions). Buying in advance saves times on arrival. You can either board your first train immediately or get a quick stamp from a railway official, depending on the reseller. Depending on the reseller as well, you can pay in your own currency, so there won't be any exchange rate surprises or fees from the bank. You have to pay in Swiss francs if you buy in Switzerland, so the actual price you pay will only become clear when you see your bank statement. Buying in Switzerland would be a good choice if you don't know your travel details until the last minute, or if it's much cheaper for the pass you have in mind.
Anyway, it's a matter of personal preferences, so you can best see for yourself at the Swiss Pass page. If you just select "Singapore" and your desired pass type, all the options will be shown with full details about prices, shipping, promotions, etc. Please note that prices do not include promo code discounts you may be able to use, so you may pay less depending on your order value. Please see this topic for details.
