This announcement is just for travelers from the UK and Ireland. For the UK, there are no shipping costs for those why prefer to receive physical tickets. But if one selects "Online Ticket", the pass can be printed at home and hence there is no shipping fee either.
You're from Canada. If you prefer to order through the SBB, you'd better not use the UK site, but the international SBB webshop. Payment is in Swiss francs there. For a better deal you can order through your local Canadian reseller here: raileurope.ca/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html. Those prices are much lower at the moment. I don't know how long they will keep that up through.
Regardless of where you live you can always compare prices in the Price sections of any of our pass pages, like here. Please check if your country of residence is set correctly on that page. It should be okay automatically.
I have not experienced the 2 month limit. I just tried to order for June and that worked. Which exact website were you trying?
