I think you've miscalculated somehow. Over at www.happyrail.com/en/p ass/europe/switzerland /swiss-travel-pass-consecutive, an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass costs € 331 ($ 343). The SBB web shop at www.swissrailways.com/ en offers it for CHF 363 ($ 352). So that's only a $ 9 difference. And I think Happyrail charges a bit extra for credit card payments whereas the SBB web shop does not. Happyrail is a perfectly legitimate retailer, so if you prefer them you can certainly buy there. All purchase options are listed here at the Swiss Travel Pass page.
The SBB are the Swiss Federal Railways; the biggest of many railway companies in Switzerland. Eurail is a range of passes (see here) to travel in one or more European counties. A common misspelling is "Euro rail", but that does not exist. Eurail passes include less benefits in Switzerland than the Swiss Travel Pass. You can compare them in detail through the given links.
