Are Apple Authorized Resellers allowed to markup price?

I went to a so-called Premium Reseller, and they tried to charge me $100 more for an iPhone 5. I left the store and ordered online, and the phone will be delivered in a couple of days.

Last time, when I went to a reseller store for iPhone 4, they tried to force sell me accessories. Otherwise, they wouldn't sell me iPhone.

I'm wondering if they are even allowed to do that as Apple's authorized resellers.

it's probably not a price markup of the phone itself. they are probably charging $100 for the membership/accessories fee which is a requirement to buy the phone from them.

I went to Nubox and saw IP5 displayed with label price of $948 for 16gb.

When approached the salesguy, he mentioned $1148,"not the labelled price" he confirmed.
No T&C mentioned

Is it legal or illegal for any shop to ask you to pay higher than the labelled price?

For the shop to report GST to iras, are they filing GST tax based on retail price of $948 or $1148?

If apple online store has ready stock of ip5, why would anyone want to buy at $100 more from a authorized seller?? Makes no sense.
