I expect the paper option to remain available for quite a while. I assume they want to keep that option for travelers such as yourself, and for sure not all retailers will immediately offer this new delivery method.
Hotel wifi, a public hotel internet computer, or free wifi on some of the stations will be sufficient to claim a travel day. Apart from that, there are pretty affordable options to get internet access, which is really helpful for weather forecasts, train schedules and more: www.myswissalps.com/si mcard.
For a lot of itineraries the regular Swiss Travel Pass works best. It has consecutive days so no choices to make. But the Flex pass will gradually move into a new era which requires a minute of internet access to claim a travel day.
Just let us know if you have questions when your trip approaches!
