after filling the details of my account the price changes to 70.09

3.PNG
i can't figure out how the 68 goes up to 70
in the stores list it says there is a 2.99 shipping (wth didn't it said final price?) but 2.99 + 68.95=71.94
stores.PNG
then with the shittiest delivery option and in the final page it shows the price as 74.59

can someone explain me if this is a new scam or what?
i mean. i almost pressed to buy it without noticing this.. and now i am wondering how it come to this values.. do i have to pay for shipping twice or somehting?

Taxes, probably. The price and shipping costs assumes you live in a certain location, after you put in your address info the price was updated to reflect the shipping costs/tax where you live.

20 euros for 2 purchases a year? no thanks...
it's extremly rare to use amazon...

but it doesn't make sence, in the third picture there is info about taxes (iva) and price before taxes
in that third picture it shows "estimated full price" and that is the exact full price that shows up in the very last page however it doesn't explain how 68.95 changes magically into 70.09

It could be taxes, but that's normally listed separately.
It's probably currency conversion if you didn't use the Amazon site for your country. The ones I know are:
amazon.com for US
amazon.ca for Canada
amazon.co.uk for the UK
amazon.in or amazon.co.in* for India
* They could both be wrong.

In fact, the last panel shows 56 for the product, 4 for shipping, and 13 for tax
