Motivated by a recent work of Loaiza et al. for the holomorphic case on the disk, we introduce and study the notion of Schatten-Herz type Toeplitz operators acting on the harmonic Bergman space of the ball. We obtain characterizations of positive Toeplitz operators of Schatten-Herz type in terms of averaging functions and Berezin transforms of symbol functions. Our characterization in terms of Berezin transforms settles a question posed by Loaiza et al.
