Welcome to MySwissAlps Pklele!
That's indeed weird. I did notice that the US Rail Europe site increased their prices recently, but once ordered and paid the price should not change. So are they asking you to pay $48 extra to actually receive the passes, or else cancel it? If so, I'll get in touch with them to see if I can find out more. Can you share their full e-mail, or forward it to our e-mail?
I'm not sure which website you consider to be the official one as there are many Swiss and foreign websites selling Swiss Travel Passes. Did you check www.swissrailways.com/ en perhaps? That's the "official" tourist webshop of the Swiss Railways. Their prices in CHF are usually stable for an entire year, but other retailers can set their own prices based on exchange rates, promotions and more. There is no relation there. Rail Europe was cheaper than this webshop, until their most recent price change.
