If you buy from an authorized reseller, the price is the list price ($35, $35, $55) converted to local currency plus local taxes.
This isn't actually correct, the authorised resellers are not bound to the $35, $45, $55 pricing. Local authorised resellers here are charging a premium (which they were not charging at launch) and no, it isn't a tax.
Regarding inflated eBay prices, eBay charges fees, your bank charges fees, you get taxed on the sale and you have to pay postage / cost of sending it. It's no wonder people charge higher prices.
I'd avoid newegg, they sell new AND refurbished items, but they don't tell you that openly. You may have bought a second hand Pi3b+ for $35
