    "I wish there were an option to buy something." - subjunctive mood. Though you will frequently hear SovereignSun's version, and someone will be along shortly to claim that that is more idiomatic. – peterG Dec 2 '17 at 18:16

If you don't know whether there is an option to buy it, but you want there to be:

  • I hope there is an option to buy it.
  • I hope there will be an option to buy it.
  • I want there to be an option to buy it.
  • I want to be able to buy it.
  • I want to have the option of buying it.

If you know there isn't such an option, but you wish that there were:

  • I wish there were an option to buy it.
  • (less formally) I wish there was an option to buy it.
