You do need a physical ticket - you must print the rail pass when it is emailed to you.
It is quite normal here to charge for shipping.
Every adult will need their own Swiss Travel Pass (printed out and carried with them). You can then order a free Swiss family Card when you order the Swiss Travel Pass that covers the kids (1 card covers all 3). They will then travel free on all routes (even if you have to buy a discounted ticket like for Gornergrat).
I see now. Ok well the Glacier Paradise (also known as the Klein Matterhorn) is also discounted 50% with your Swiss Travel Pass. You can visit those mountains on any date that your Swiss Travel Pass is valid. The start date for the Swiss travel pass is just that; the date when the Swiss Travel Pass becomes valid.
If you buy tickets for those mountains online, you will need to buy a ticket for a date that your Swiss Travel Pass is valid for (any day during the 8 days it is valid for, if you have an 8 day pass).
I would wait until you are ready to travel up the mountain before buying tickets to make sure the weather looks good first.
