Unable to add plugin in wordpress

Every time I try to upload  and install the wc vendors plugin in my wordpress software, I am being directed to a page telling me:

The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

Someone plz help me with this. I don't know php and I am very new to cpanel and all this stuff

Could it be you are uploading the wrong .zip file?  Try unzipping and looking within for the actual plugin .zip.   Premium plugins come in a main zip that then contains all the documentation and other info you my need.  Within that main .zip is the actual plugin's .zip that you upload.

Hello there,

If you are still getting this error after you check out the advice that has already been given, go into your file manager, public_html/wp-includes/default-constants.php change your file size..... this is if the advice given is not working or if you get this error when doing something else that needs done.

Wish you well!
